Creamy Kefir Broccoli

This is a creamy mashed broccoli that my family loves as much as mashed potatoes. Super easy to make and a great way to get your family to have their greens. Eating broccoli may enhance your body’s ability to detoxify after exposure to food - and air-borne carcinogens and oxidants, thanks to the phytochemical sulforaphane. A study conducted on a group of 10 smokers and 10 nonsmokers ingesting broccoli indicated the importance of consuming cruciferous vegetables to protect cells against DNA damage.
