Tenderstem® broccoli gets cooking with Dr Rupy in The Doctor’s Kitchen

Published: in News

Here at Tenderstem® broccoli, we’re always on the look-out for likeminded foodies to inspire us with new and exciting ways to cook and enjoy our versatile vegetable.

That’s why we’re very excited to announce a brand new partnership with best-selling cookbook author, NHS GP and founder of The Doctor’s Kitchen, Dr Rupy Aujla!

When it comes to creating meals that are quick, easy, delicious and – most importantly – nutritious, Dr Rupy has a wealth of great suggestions.

Dr Rupy has become a household name following TV appearances on ITV’s This Morning and a BBC series featuring 18 recipes.

Dr Rupy, who is a practising NHS doctor, shared his ethos of improving your health using food in his two Sunday Times bestselling cookbooks, The Doctor’s Kitchen and Eat to Beat Illness, and his healthy and flavour-packed recipes have helped him attract over 200,000 followers on his Instagram page.

In his first book, The Doctor’s Kitchen, Dr Rupy explains the science underpinning the benefits of healthy eating and how largely plant based ‘colourful’ diets are the healthiest. He also explains why gut health is important and how you can make important changes to your diet and lifestyle.

In his second book, Eat to Beat Illness, Dr Rupy takes a more focused approach on how we can eat and live to reduce the risk of brain disease, cardiovascular problems, inflammation imbalance and many more illnesses that he has come across during his career as a doctor.

We are delighted to be teaming up with Dr Rupy who has created three new recipes, perfect for light lunches at home or mid-week meals. Each recipe features delicious flavours from around the world and, of course, his favourite veggie: Tenderstem® broccoli. What’s more, each recipe is a healthy option for a mid-week meal – all three recipes are under 500 calories per serving, as well as being low in saturated fat and a source of fibre.

Why not try your hand at a vegan-friendly Indian-spiced pilaf which can go from kitchen to dining table in just 45 minutes? Filling and nutritious, this dish contains 465 calories per serving and is low in fat and high in manganese, which contributes to the maintenance of normal bones. What’s more, this recipe is a source of protein and fibre, with the Tenderstem® broccoli providing 22% of the fibre in this dish.

Alternatively, if you’ve only got half an hour, this delicious Korean-style black bean stew ticks all the boxes: quick, simple, healthy and delicious! At just 400 calories per serving, this delicious and nutritious dish is a source of both protein and fibre and is also high in vitamins A and C. Vitamin A contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and vision as well as contributing to the normal function of the immune system. Vitamin C contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue as well as contributing to normal collagen formation for the normal function of bones, skin, teeth and gums.

Last but certainly not least, try Dr Rupy’s take on a one-tray wonder with this za’atar style fish tray bake with Tenderstem® broccoli – the perfect recipe to cook after a busy day when saving on washing-up is paramount. Not only that, this dish is low in saturated fat and high in potassium which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood pressure.

Even better, you can let Dr Rupy guide the way using our cook-along videos so it’s impossible to put a foot wrong! Check out the videos here.

The hardest decision is… which to cook first?!
