Mauritian Comfort food ❤️

 

 

Nothing pleased me more than coming home form school to steaming hot bowl Bouillon chou-fleur, Karela, Brown rice & Mauritian rougaille.

Found this PURPLE BEAUTY in the farmers market today!

Major factor! Karela has Iron, twice the beta-carotene of broccoli, twice the potassium of bananas and twice the calcium of spinach. It also contains high amounts of fiber, phosphorous and Vitamins C, B1, B2 and B3.

Lead researcher Ratna Ray, PhD, believes “bitter melon holds great potential in the field of anti-cancer medicine.” Other studies have already found that bitter melon kills pancreatic cancer and breast cancer cells.

More than enough reason for me to in operate this in our weekly meal plans!
