This delicious recipe was adapted from the Diet Doctor website, and it’s a delicious alternative to mashed cauliflower as a side dish!
- 1½ lbs broccoli
- 4 tbsp fresh basil or fresh parsley, finely chopped (or 2 tbsp any dried herbs of your choice)
- 4 tbsp salted butter (or olive oil for a vegan version – add 1/4 tsp salt)
- 1 garlic clove
- salt and pepper
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.
Makes 4 servings. Count each serving as 2 fats (group 7).
Try sprinkling some cheddar or Parmesan cheese on top for added protein and delicious flavour!
