Broccoli spread

prep time

20 minutes

ingredients

  • 500g broccoli florets
  • 1 fresh cheese (Philadelphia style) (120g)
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 glove of garlic
  • sunflower seeds

Method

1. Trim off any leaves or blemishes, cut the edge and cook the crown for approximately six minutes in salty water until soft – app. 6 minutes. Make sure to buy young vegetable with no major brown or yellowing spots, as it would be harder to work with. Broccoli stem should feel firm and the crown should be tight, soft stems or limp florets are a sign of old broccoli. Once the crown is cooked - drain well and let it cool down. This can be done day ahead.

2. Put the crown, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and salt into food processor and blend well until smooth. You can use the blender for this too.

3. When the mixture is smooth, add cheese and whisk well, do not use blender for this.  

4. Taste and add salt, if needed.

5. Serve into lunch box, with some sesame seeds. It is great to eat with fresh bread, bread sticks or crackers.
