Today's blog post was inspired by two things:
1 - How beautiful and green gardens and grass look in Pretoria at the moment after all the rain the city has had; and
2 - This post by Gluten-Free Girl and the Chef.
I thought I'd share two recipe ideas for making this simple and often-hated green vegetable shine epicuriously.
Recipe Idea Number 1:
Broccoli and Blue-Cheese Soup
This is a dish best kept for those Wintry days when you need something warm and comforting. It languishes on the tastebuds and tempts you to have yet another bowlful.
- Oven-roasted red onions
- Steamed/boiled broccoli
- Blue cheese
Recipe Idea Number 2:
Broccoli with Flaked Almonds and Caper Vinaigrette
I made this recipe up one day when my tastebuds were craving a zing-experience. It can be served hot or cold because either way - it's sublime!
- Broccoli florets (steamed/boiled till al dente)
- Flaked almonds (dry pan-fried till slightly browned around the edges)
- Vinaigrette (made from balsamic vinegar [or lemon juice], olive oil, capers, salt and black pepper)
I hope these ideas inspire you to eat and enjoy these green little trees which pack a fantastic anti-cancer punch!
