Broccoli Rabe and Butternut Squash

Broccoli Rabe and Butternut Squash with Strawberry Rosemary Dressing

This raw recipe combines a cruciferous vegetable with a perfect blend of ingredients to help the absorption of each magical nutrient. As a rule of thumb, try to eat cruciferous vegetables together with mustard seeds or mustard greens for the best absorption. The flavors of broccoli rabe and butternut squash come alive with this delicious creamy dressing.

4 cups fresh organic broccoli rabe, roughly chopped
1/2 organic butternut squash, sliced rounds very thin*
1/2 teaspoon Celtic salt


Strawberry Rosemary Dressing

1 cup organic strawberries or wild strawberries
1 tablespoon homemade sprouted mustard (recipe on website)
1/2 organic lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon organic cold pressed olive oil
1 organic garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon fresh organic rosemary, minced
1/4 teaspoon Celtic salt
1/4 teaspoon organic black peppercorns, fresh ground

Arrange the broccoli rabe and sprinkle with some salt. Add the butternut squash round slices sprinkled with the rest of the salt.

Blend all the dressing ingredients in a high speed blender (like Vitamix) and drizzle on the vegetables. Enjoy fresh.
