Broccoli Arugula Soup | Recipes | Scoop.it
Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat.  Add the onions and cook until soft and translucent, about 4 to 5 minutes.  Add the garlic cloves and cook for another minute.  Add the broccoli and cook for about 4 minutes, until the broccoli is bright green in color.  Add the cumin, salt and pepper.  Stir to combine.

Add the water or chicken stock, lower the heat and cover.  Cook for about 8 minutes, until the broccoli has been softened. and is just tender.

Here’s the tricky part.  We’re going to blend the soup.  Working in batches, transfer some of the soup liquid and broccoli to a blender.  Add half of the arugula leaves and blend until smooth.  Transfer to a bowl or another pot while you blend the second batch of soup with the rest of the arugula.  Return to a pot over a low flame, check to see if it needs more salt or pepper.  Throw in the juice of 1/2 a lemon and serve.

In Season Now: Parsnips

In Season Now: Parsnips | Recipes | Scoop.it
The parsnip, a root vegetable closely related to the carrot, is slightly
sweet and quite versatile. Parsnips are rich in vitamins and minerals –
especially Vitamin C and potassium – and can be boiled and pureed, sautéed,
added to soups and stews, or roasted, as in this recipe. Here, they combine
with Brussels sprouts – another cherished autumn vegetable. Horseradish,
toasted hazelnuts and thyme add earthy and spicy contrasts to the parsnips’
sweetness.

Roasted Parsnips and Brussels Sprout
SuperHappyEats's insight:
Health benefits of parsnips
  • Parsnip is a sweet, juicy root rich in several health-benefiting phyto-nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and fiber.

  • It is an excellent source of soluble and insoluble dietary fiber. 100 g root provides 4.9 mg or 13% of fiber. Adequate fiber in the diet helps reduce blood cholesterol levels, obesity and constipation conditions.

  • Parsnip contains many poly-acetylene anti-oxidants such as falcarinol, falcarindiol, panaxydiol, and methyl-falcarindiol.

  • Studies have found that these compounds have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, and anti-cancer function and offer protection from colon cancer and acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

  • Fresh roots are also good in vitamin C; provide about 17 mg or 28% of RDA. Vitamin C helps the body maintain healthy connective tissue, teeth, and gum. Its anti-oxidant property helps protect from diseases and cancers by scavenging harmful free radicals from the body.

  • Parsnip is rich in many B-complex groups of vitamins such as folic acid, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin, and pantothenic acid as well as vitamin K and vitamin E.

  • It also has healthy levels of minerals like iron, calcium, copper, potassium, manganese and phosphorus. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure by countering effects of sodium.

Health benefits of brussel sprouts
  • Brussel sprouts are low-glycemic nutritious vegetables. 100 g contain 45 calories,  3.38 g of protein, 3.80 g of dietary fiber (10% of RDA) and zero cholesterol.

  • They are a storehouse of several flavonoid anti-oxidants like thiocyanates, indoles, lutein, zea-xanthin, sulforaphane and isothiocyanates. Together, these phytochemicals offer protection from prostate, colon, and endometrial cancers.

  • Di-indolyl-methane (DIM), a metabolite of indole-3-carbinol is found to be an effective immune modulator, anti-bacterial and anti-viral agent through its action of potentiating "Interferon-γ" receptors.

  • Brussel sprouts contain glucoside, sinigrin. Early laboratory studies suggest that sinigrin help protect from colon cancers by destroying pre-cancerous cells.

  • They are an excellent source of vitamin C; 100 g sprouts provide about 85 mg or 142% of RDA. Together with other antioxidant vitamins such as vitamin A and E, it helps protect the body by trapping harmful free radicals.

  • Zea-xanthin, an important dietary carotenoid in sprouts, is selectively absorbed into the retinal macula-lutea in the eyes where it is thought to provide anti-oxidant and protective light-filtering functions from UV rays. Thus, it helps prevent retinal damage, "age-related macular degeneration related macular degeneration disease" (ARMD), in the elderly.

  • Sprouts are a good source of anti-oxidant vitamin A, provides about 754 IU per 100g. Vitamin A is required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin and is essential for acuity of vision. Foods rich in this vitamin have been found to offer protection against lung and oral cavity cancers.

  • They are an excellent vegetable source for vitamin-K; 100 g provides about 177 µg or about 147% of RDA. Vitamin K has potential role bone health by promoting osteotrophic (bone formation and strengthening) activity. Adequate vitamin-K levels in the diet help limiting neuronal damage in the brain and thereby, preventing or at least, delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

  • Sprouts are notably good in many B-complex groups of vitamins such as niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin, pantothenic acid, etc., that are essential for substrate metabolism inside the human body.

  • They are also rich source of minerals like copper, calcium, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus. 100 g fresh sprouts provide 25 mg (1.5% of RDA) sodium and 389 mg (8% of RDA) potassium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure by countering effects of sodium. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme,superoxide dismutaseIron is required for cellular oxidation and red blood cell formation.
