Broccoli means ‘little flower’ and is related to cauliflower, very high in calcium. Here are some nice plant-based recipes to use up this tasty cheap vegetable.
Low-Waste Broccoli Tater Tots (So Vegan) are kind of like the old-style croquettes that your mum likely made from leftover potatoes. Leave them to cool to firm up, and squeeze the moisture out of the broccoli and potato with a tea towel, for more crunchy bites.
Dark leafy greens are high in vitamin K, so check medication as too much may interact. Also avoid for some stomach/bowel issues, due to oxalic acid. Use vegan butters with no palm oil. Keep these recipes away from pets due to toxic ingredients (garlic, onion, leeks, chives, mushrooms, nutmeg, fresh dough, green potatoes/onions).
Creamy Vegan Broccoli Soup (Short Girl, Tall Order) is very easy to make, with just a few ingredients.
Bang Bang Broccoli (So Vegan) hide the veggies in a vegan buttermilk coating, then bake and serve with a spicy mayo.
Vegan Broccoli Mac & Cheese (Crowded Kitchen) is a lovely cheezy variation of favourite comfort food, ideal winter eating.
