Recipe (6): Broccoli and Black Fungus Salad

Updated on August 4, 2012

Broccoli is rich in Vitamin C, which helps greatly to increase the concentration of VC in gastric juice of patients of gastric cancer. At the same time, it has considerable amount of carotene, which helps to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. More specially, according to some nutritional researches, broccoli has various indole derivatives, which decrease the level of estrogen, and so prevent the development of breast cancer in some sense. Besides, it has been found that an instance in broccoli, which is called sulforaphane, is another cancer-prevention agent. Therefore, broccoli has considerable efficacy to cure and prevent cancers. On the other hand, Chinese medicine believes that broccoli functions to nourish kidney, stomach, spleen and bone.

Black fungus has rich sugar and protein, as well as various vitamins and minerals. Black fungus has a special function in cleaning the visceral organs. Black fungus is rich in polysaccharide colloids, which can absorb and help dissolve and digest the remaining dust and other foreign matters, such as hairs, saw dust, or metal dust, in human bodies, and so it is thought of a necessary food for mining, textile, and chemical workers.

In the dish, the above vegetable match together, having efficacy to remove heat (the two vegetables are cold in nature by Chinese medicine, and so people who often feel cold in stomach are not supposed to eat much), detoxify and prevent cancers. Usually, carrot is chosen as side vegetable to both make colorful and increase nutrients. The dish is made in beautiful arrangement to improve eating feeling, and marinated in garlic-ginger flavory sauce. In following picture is the dish that I made. I was currently short of carrot, and then I used red pepper sweet to replace it. Now, let's start from "Ingredients".

      So glad you have this feeling on the "warm" and "cool". Ancient Chinese doctors defined them based on their experiences and professions, and I believe so. My stomach belongs to "great coldness", i.e. I always feel cold in stomach. I can't have any cold drink and cold food, which make me diarrhea. I'll add an Amazon capsule for the black fungus. Have a good day!

      You need an Amazon capsule with black fungus for sale. Where do you get it?

      I am impressed with the understanding of "warm" and "cool" food that you have in the orient. We just eat anything that can't escape, and don't have the sophisticatio or balance in our diet.

      Good stuff here.
