This is a good dish to pull out for a more low-key, relaxing Father's Day dinner. It definitely meets the healthy recipe criteria, as it is bursting at the seams with protein, as well as being a good source of potassium. Broccoli is a fantastic source of vitamins C and K. Vitamin K is great for maintaining bone and heart health, and vitamin C gives your immune system a helping hand.
