Eating a wide variety of vegetables is not only essential for a healthy diet — but it’s also a smart strategy for losing weight. In particular, cruciferous vegetables like broccoliBrussels sprouts and cauliflower can help lower your risk of disease and increase longevity. Research shows these veggies contain compounds that help fight non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. They’re low in calories and high in satiating fiber, which can also aid weight loss.

These 15 recipes feature cruciferous veggies in everything from hearty soups to better-for-you pasta dishes and grain bowls — with up to 37 grams of protein per serving.
