Broccoli and Capsicum Curry

Do you want to add some colour to the “spread” on the dining table??– This colourful, quick and tasty mixed vegetable curry recipe has a combination of broccoli florets, red and green capsicum, prepared with onions for that extra colour, flavour and taste!!

Capsicums come in red, green or golden and they are also called chilli peppers. They have very high levels of Vitamin C and Vitamin A.
Broccoli is a vegetable that belongs to the cabbage family. It is high in Vitamin C, very nutritious and has anti-cancerous properties. In order to preserve the nutrients and the benefits of this vegetable, it is recommended to steam or stir fry the vegetable rather than cooking it.
