3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup chopped parsley (you can include the stems)
2 cups chopped green onions (green parts only)
12 ounces broccoli, cut up small
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1⁄4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (black pepper enhances absorption of the anti-inflammatory flavonoids contained in turmeric)
1 tablespoon shredded daikon radish, added just before serving
Step by Step Instructions
Just before eating, add one tablespoon of freshly shredded daikon radish per serving. Uncooked daikon contains a very special enzyme called myrosinase, which enhances the nutritional value of cooked broccoli.
Or, if you like, allow the soup to cool and puree it to a creamy consistency, then reheat it before serving. The daikon should always be added just before eating.
