Raw Broccoli and Tomato Salad

This is easy and refreshing tasting salad of few ingredients: all you need is fresh broccoli crown, few tomatoes, onion and some greens.

It is important to use broccoli crown as it is normally more soft and less chewy than more mature pieces.

Raw broccoli and tomato salad pairs well with meat or poultry courses.

Creamy Fusilli Pasta with Broccoli and Cheese

Easy recipe to do fusilli pasta cooked with cream, broccoli and cheese.

I used italian blend cheese mix, but I think other cheese or cheeses will work as well.

As well as other kind of pasta, fusilli seemed like one of the choices, others will work good too.

Just cook pasta to your liking (or/and according to the package instructions until al dente).

Vegetables with Cream

Vegetables with Cream

Vegetables with cream are pretty easy to cook and they make a great side dish for meat or poultry. It can also be served as a no-meat course.

I used carrots, broccoli and cauliflower florets with peas for this recipe, but it will also work good with green beans, zucchini, brussels sprouts, whatever you have on your hands.

The same, you can use either fresh vegetables or frozen ones, or a combination of these. For example, for this recipe I used fresh broccoli and cauliflower with frozen sliced carrots and frozen peas.

Fresh Broccoli Salad with Raisins and Sunflower Seeds

Broccoli is one of vegetables I never tried before we came to US. Amongst other foods prepared of broccoli, fresh broccoli salads are pretty popular here.

And I think variation with fresh broccoli, onions, raisins, sunflower seeds and bacon crumbles is the most popular one.

If you wish to make salad lighter skip the bacon (obvious decision) and use lighter mayo.

Soup-Purée with Broccoli and Chicken

This bright green colored soup-purée (or cream soup) made of chicken, broccoli and some other vegies is probably the quickest to prepare soup I know.

It is also nutritious: loaded with healthy vegetables and white chicken meat, which are boiled, pureed and blended together for tasty creamy texture.

All that makes this soup very good choice not only for kids, but also for people who prefer soft food.

Fried Broccoli Side Dish

Fried Broccoli Side Dish

You may want to try frying broccoli in eggs and flour if you find taste of boiled ones not that exciting. It is not much harder to prepare but it has more rich taste.

Amount of eggs and flour will depend on size of broccoli crowns, so numbers I’ve listed are approximate.

In this recipe plain flour can be replaced with bread crumbs or a mix of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese if you are adventurous.

Serve fried broccoli as a side dish or an appetizer.
