White Bean Bowl With Broccoli Pesto

Active time: 10 minutes Total time: 15 minutes

It takes only five ingredients to make this dish (not including salt, pepper and oil, which we consider freebies). Frozen broccoli plays two starring roles here. A good amount of whole florets bulk up the bowl, while some is processed into an easy pesto sauce.

The white beans and broccoli in this dish are highly functional for your health. The fiber in the beans feeds the healthy bacteria in your gut, while the broccoli contains a powerful antioxidant called glucosinolates. Processing the broccoli into pesto actually makes the glucosinolates more easy to absorb and convert into active compounds in the body.
