Dr. Herrington's Health Fact
Broccoli contains a powerful compound called sulforaphane. Recent research found that sulforaphane has the potential to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Multiple studies have also shown that eating cruciferous vegetables (of which Broccoli is one of), reduces the risk of breast, ovarian, and prostate cancers.

- Heat the dairy-free cheese sauce
- Garnish & Serve
Bake the fries: Wash and rinse all produce. Turn on the oven to 400F. Line a baking sheet with a non-stick sheet or parchment paper. Peel the potatoes and cut in fries shape, about 1 cm thick. Place the fries on the baking sheet. Drizzle with oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp), salt (1/4 tsp, 1/8 tsp), and pepper (1 pinch, 1/8 tsp). Combine to ensure even coating and place in an even layer to ensure the potatoes cook evenly. Bake in the oven about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked and start to become golden.
Cook the chorizo tofurkey: Heat oil (1/2 tsp, 1 tsp) in a medium pan on medium heat. Add the chorizo tofurkey. Cook the tofurkey, stirring regularly, until fully cooked – about 5 minutes.
Steam the broccoli: In a pot add about 2 cm of water. Bring the water to a boil on medium heat. Add the broccoli, cover and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Once the broccoli is cooked, serve right away to ensure the broccoli stays bright green OR transfer to a strainer and run a bit of cold water over them to stop the cooking.
Prepare the garnish: Cut the tomatoes in 1 cm dice and roughly chop the parsley in about 1 cm pieces.
Heat the dairy-free cheese sauce: Place the dairy free cheese sauce in a small bowl that can go in the microwave. Heat the sauce for 30 seconds, stir and heat for an additional 30 seconds as required. Add 1 tbsp. of water if required to make the sauce thinner and stir well.
Garnish & Serve: On individual serving plates place the baked fries. Top them with chorizo tofurkey, dairy-free cheese sauce (keep some sauce for the broccoli), sour cream, diced tomatoes and parsley. Place the broccoli on the plate and top with dairy-free cheese sauce. Serve.
