Follow Sarafae's steps to create a marinated, tender and softened raw broccoli dish with a creamy, tangy mustard sauce. Broccoli is loaded with valuable nutrients such as vitamin C, Vitamin K, zinc, selenium, and a compound called glucoraphanin which our bodies turn into sulforaphane. This compound acts as an antioxidant and is an especially powerful skin cell protector. Broccoli can be a bit of a challenge to eat raw as it is fibrous and for some hard to digest properly. Marinating and softening your broccoli first will enable you to enjoy it raw with all its incredible nutrition in tact!
