It’s Friday: time for What To Make With What’s On Sale! Organic broccoli is $0.99/lb this week at Sunflower Market. If you happened to stop by Rancho Liborio yesterday, you may have bought broccoli for just $0.49/lb.
I have to admit, I don’t buy broccoli often because I don’t personally love the taste. But there are so many different ways to prepare and serve broccoli, I really don’t have an excuse (and it’s just so nutritious!).
Here are five fresh ideas for using broccoli that hopefully will inspire you to make this superfood a regular on your menu!
Parmesan-Roasted Broccoli from Ina Garten looks easy and yummy; if you want to make it even simpler, try omitting the pine nuts and/or basil.
This Broccoli Slaw recipe is a great summer side dish. It calls for just a half-cup of mayonnaise (compared to one cup or more in most slaw recipes!) It’s also easily modified depending on the tastes of your family.
This Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Salad is a delicious and hearty side dish that’s also perfect for summer meals since it’s refrigerated prior to serving. Seriously, who can resist broccoli when it’s covered in cheese and bacon? :)
If you need a crowd-pleasing appetizer that doesn’t require a lot of time, try these Broccoli Squares. Pastries are topped with a cream cheese spread, Cheddar cheese, tomatoes, and fresh broccoli.
Jaden’s Beef with Broccoli (from Pioneer Woman) is a simple, super tasty Asian dish that makes a complete meal when served over rice.
What’s your favorite way to prepare fresh broccoli?
