Broccoli sprouts are rich in vitamin C, E, folate and fibre. These tiny sprouts have a strong, tangy taste similar to other radishes. Add them to salads, sandwiches, smoothies and as a topper for your favourite dish.
Research has found that 3-4 day old broccoli sprouts contain higher levels of sulforaphane than mature broccoli. Sulforaphane is a cancer-fighting chemical found in cruciferous vegetables including broccoli, brussel sprouts, kale, radish and cauliflower.
