Raw Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Blueberry Caviar

Serves 4.


    Raw Broccoli, Cauliflower, and Blueberry Caviar 

    Raw broccoli and cauliflower are detox superstars, containing nutrients that cleanse, restore, and nourish the body—skin included. Blueberries are known for their antiaging nutrient density and offer natural sweetness to cut the broccoli’s pungency. This “caviar” can be left to marinate for up to two days, so you can snack to your skin’s content or add it to a larger meal.



    If raw broccoli and cauliflower don’t agree with your digestive system, give them a light steam before making the caviar.
