Everyone is busy with a hectic life style these days. We are always on the run juggling work ,family,home.When you are short of time to cook and still want your family to have a healthy meal, one pot meal recipes come in handy. They can be cooked in a less time and yet be a nutritious meal.I usually cook one pot meals on weekday morning. Best way to incorporate veggies into my family’s diet. Today i am sharing one such healthy and yummy recipe.
Broccoli is a powerhouse of nutrients.It is rich in Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Manganese.Broccoli has low content of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and dietary fiber.Coconuts are known for their great versatility, as evidenced by many traditional uses, ranging from food to cosmetics.They form a regular part of the diets of many people in the tropics and subtropics.Broccoli and freshly grated coconut make a great combo.
My contribution for our 95th #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme #Onepotmeal is this yummy and healthy Broccoli and Coconut Rice.
