What can I do with Broccoli?

Recently a friend of mine had ample success growing broccoli in her garden. Since its not the most typical of vegetables made in Indian homes, there arose the question - What can I do with broccoli. As always Facebook came to the rescue with a dozen different comments coming up on her query. So here's the list, take your pick.

You can...
  •  Blanch it, and saute it lightly with garlic, oregano, and cajun spice in unsalted butter....sprinkle with parmessan cheese
  • Blend eggs, pepper, milk and broccoli - drink the health drink that results
  • A few strips of crispy lean bacon and some smoked chicken could really enhance the flavour of the broccoli
  • Use Broccoli instead of cauliflower - in all recipes using cauliflower! My favorite - stuffed paranthas with broccoli, ginger, garlic, cilantro and masalas.  
  • Sautée the broccoli with garlic and olive oil- add to penne 
  • Add red pepper flakes and little butter along with the garlic and olive oil and add to maccaroni
  • Cheese & Broccoli, match made in heaven..almost !
  • Macaroni in white sauce flavored with spring onions, with a side of broccoli (with garlic and cheese) and sausages.   
  • Broccoli pakodas, use cornflour and maida batter add pepper and salt to taste
  • Steam and add crumbs of fried bacon to it. Add salt pepper to taste
  • Mix of cauliflower and broccoli florets in normal cauliflower veg also tastes good
So now you know what you can do with your broccoli!
