Recently I went a little crazy with the vegetable specials and have ended up with half a fridge full of Broccoli. I know broccoli is quite cheap at the moment, so I thought I would compile a list of ‘What to do with Broccoli’ Thermomix recipes.
I recently asked the Skinnymixers Facebook Group, what they would make with all the Broccoli that ‘healthy’ me bought when grocery shopping. Here are some of the tips and recipes for Broccoli.
Roasted Broccoli – just cut and place on a tray with some oil. Top with a little grated parmesan or garlic if you like.
Sesame Roasted Broccoli – roast with sesame oil and top with toasted slivered almonds.
Broccoli Salad – small florets, raisins, grated cheese, pine nuts, crispy bacon crumbled, mayonnaise.
Broccoli Rice – to freeze or use.
The first thing I made was…
Bacon & Broccoli Fritters with Ranch Sauce
Is there a better combination than bacon & broccoli??
This recipe is exclusive to The Healthy Mix II, but is seriously worth the cost of the book for this recipe alone.
The fritter mix will thicken a little on standing and is a bit like a pancake mix – where you spoon the mix into a hot pan to cook.
Alternatively you could also use your pie maker to cook uniform fritters.
Please don’t forget the Ranch sauce… it is the best bit!
There are post after post in the Skinnymixers FB Group of Skinnies forgetting to get cauliflower or not having enough, so they have substituted in some broccoli into the Creamy Chicken & Cauliflower Soup recipe.
