In honour of the late (but not-so-great) @TrainedRage, who was a truly awful man that I did not care about -- in fact, so awful that he shall henceforth be referred to as <He Who Shall Not Be Named> -- I present the Broccoli Lovers |OT|. In this thread, I request that you share your recipes in honour of <He Who Shall Not Be Named> for whom the humble broccoli was the greatest kind of green tree due to how well its vibrant colour matched his bright red hair. I will kick us off with this brilliant Broccoli and Goat Cheese Soup:

Ingredients
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 gloves garlic, peeled and crushed
2 cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1 red chilli, finely chopped
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
500 ml vegetable stock
1 cup broccoli florets
Handful of spinach or kale leaves
100 g goat cheese, crumbled

Method
1. Heat the oil in a wok or frying pan over medium heat then add the garlic, ginger, chilli, coriander, turmeric, and a pinch of salt and saute for 2 minutes.
2. Add stock and simmer for 5 minutes.
3. Add broccoli and spinach/kale then cook for 3-4 minutes until soft.
4. Remove from heat, add goat cheese and stir until incorporated into the liquid.
5. Blend, serve, and hail Satan.

RIP <He Who Shall Not Be Named>

I'll add to this. I like to steam my broccoli to absolute perfection. I like a good crunch so there is a sort of "al dente" going on with the broccoli, similar to cooking a good pasta. You want to cook it so it retains a crunch and nice color, usually when it loses color it becomes "rubbery" or something of that sort. Wouldn't be able to remember because I apply science to my cooking and it's worked very well and on a consistent basis.

Broccoli and cheese cookies

Ingredients:
  • 4 ounces butter
  • 1.5 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3-4 broccoli florets, finely chopped
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup of shredded cheese
How to make:
  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Mix everything but the broccoli and cheese.
  3. Mix in the broccoli and cheese.
  4. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  5. Drop about 1 big spoonful at a time onto the baking sheet (1-1.5 tbsp each). No need to separate them too far. They shouldn’t spread.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden.

You're welcome!

Where is here? I think they’re just baby broccoli, like the same as broccoli but picked young.
They're not broccoli but a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale

Lovely thread mate, keep it up so I can send my kids to school! I grow broccoli and broccolini.

For the record, broccolini and baby broccoli are two separate things. There are many varieties of baby broccoli whilst only one broccolini. Broccolini is actually the registered trademark for the seed variety we grow and sell as broccolini in Australia. In other countries it may be called something else.

And sauteè the fuck outta them with garlic salt and oil. Delicious!
