How to Prepare this Pumpkin & Broccoli Stir-Fry
I sauteed the broccoli separately to avoid overcooking them and I wanted to maintain their green color. However, you can cook the broccoli with other ingredients, to make everything easy.
For some protein, I added tempeh and chickpeas, making this dish a filling, one-pot meal. It's also rich in dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins, making it all you need for a filling dinner.
Is Soy Healthy for Your Pumpkin & Broccoli Stir-Fry?
I know you might have questions regarding soy food. To assure you, soy if not GMO, and if it's organically grown has no side effect on our health.
Using certain soy products has been linked to a 30-35% reduction in the risk of thyroid cancer, according to the American Association for Cancer Research. And that's not all. Research articles published by the MDPI journal actually found a link to reduced prevalence of hormone-dependent cancers among people who follow Asian diets rich in soy products. Take a look at the details of what the MDPI found here.
