Instructions

  1. Chop the broccoli into florets. Peel and cut the stem into small pieces. Boil the broccoli in plenty of salted water for a couple of minutes – just enough to retain a somewhat firm texture. Discard the water and let the broccoli steam off for a while to allow excess moisture to evaporate.
  2. Blend with the butter or olive oil and fresh herbs (optional) in a food processor, or with an immersion blender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Tip!

You can use frozen or fresh broccoli for 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.

    I add mashed Avocado to Broccoli Mash - gives it a delicious nutty flavour & is so creamy.

    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.
