Ingredients

  • 25 oz. 700 g broccoli
  • 4 tbsp 60 ml fresh basil or fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 oz. 75 g butter
  • 1 1 garlic clovegarlic cloves
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

Chop the broccoli into florets and peel and cut the stem into small pieces.Boil the broccoli in plenty of lightly salted water for a couple of minutes – just enough to retain a somewhat firm texture. Discard the water.
  • Blend with the other ingredients in a food processor or use an immersion blender.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add more oil or butter if you so desire.
  • Serve piping hot!
  • Tip!

    You can use either frozen or fresh broccoli with this recipe. If you use fresh broccoli, save the stalk, peel it with a sharp knife and slice thinly. Cut the rest of the broccoli into smaller florets of roughly equal size. Feel free to substitute olive oil for some of the butter in any proportion you choose.

      My husband combines cauliflower and broccoli and calls it broccauli mash.

      As an alternate to expensive fresh vegetables in the winter, look for frozen Broccoli and Cauliflower mix (Great Value has one). As Fay suggested, the combo puréed has a mild taste and a lovely pale green color.

      Broccoli and Cauliflower two of my most favourite vegetables ...
      Broccoli is usually the cheaper!

      All the best Jan

      I quite often have broccoli and cauliflower mash. I add a touch of garlic puree, butter, little cream and cheese, salt and pepper and mash it all together. I then put the pan back onto the stove on low heat, so that the mash goes a little firmer and no leftover water. It kind of makes the mash more glupy. Delicious.
