Spicy broccoli puree’

Here is the recipe for my spicy broccoli puree! Note, I failed to take proper pictures other than my perfect bite, so all but the first picture are from Amazon and Pinterest just to give you an idea. 🙂

The perfect bite!

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 cups of steamed broccoli or broccolini if you can find it. I think it’s a bit sweeter, but either will do.

brocolini

Reserve 1 cup of the steaming liquid for puree

Calabrian chili flakes or crushed red pepper flakes to taste

calabrian-chili

1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder

salt and pepper to taste

1 pat of unsalted butter

Add the steamed broccoli, seasonings and butter to your food processor. Pulse on high until you get a creamy consistency, adding in little by little the reserved steaming liquid being careful not to get it too watery.

Serve with your favorite main dish!

Cheers!

  1. Michelle, I have been so absent from everything since trying to get into school last summer and starting in the fall, but you had me at ‘Spicy’ on this post 🙂 I will have to try this. I’ve never been good with food processors… do you have a recommendation on what to look for? And what did you pair this sauce with? Super yummy! xo Teri

      1. I’m not a fan of pepper, so I leave that out, but I otherwise that’s what I do for pretty much ever veggie under the sun. Although tonight my husband is actually grilling!

        We’re not having 70s — not even 60s (tomorrow, maybe) but it’s warmer than it’s been in a long time.

        I sear steaks indoors sometimes now, but that has a tendency to set off the smoke alarm. Even though the steak comes out good!
