Broccoli is placed on almost every super foods list because it’s low in calories, and is rich in nutrients and beneficial phytochemicals.
We have included a little bacon in this to give a little smokey flavour however if you are vegetarian omit this and use vegetable stock. This recipe serves 6 so any leftovers place in single serve containers and freeze for another day.
This recipe is low fat, low sodium, low sugar and dairy free.
1 large onion, diced
2 short cut bacon slices, diced (aka Canadian Bacon or Back Bacon)
1 large zucchini, sliced or chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
4 cups beef stock, heated

1 tsp. oregano
1 bay leaf
¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 large broccoli cut into pieces (use stem as well)
Cracked pepper to taste (we used lots)
In a large pot (we used a slow cooker) heat the olive oil and sauté the onion until softened, do not burn. Should take around 8 mins on med heat.
Now add bacon and cook a further 5 mins. After 5 mins add garlic and cook a further 30 sec.
Add heated stock, oregano, pepper, potato and bay leaf. Simmer for 2-3 minutes then add the broccoli and zucchini and parsley.
Put lid on and simmer on low heat for 45 mins until all broccoli has broken up.
