As you all know I have been gushing about Super Foods for a while now. There is never going to be an
end to new, unique and sometimes weird (to some) recipes. Neither, am l going to stop researching or buying the latest good cookbooks well it will be a shame not to really, lol. Anyway, I will stop wuffling and get straight to the point as time is precious due to the busyness of life.
I came across a new word in one of my cookbooks by a very well known female English Chef, I am not going to tell you her name as I don’t want to advertise her book for free. Others get paid for reviews but I won’t unless of course her people decide to get in touch with my people, etc. Right back to my point, the recipe is actually a twist on the famous Mexican dip, Guacamole. It’s a combination of broccoli, avocado, spring onions, lime, olive and vegetable oils blended together. And the name is, drum roll please – Brocamole. Some people may have heard of it but I certainly have not.
However, I forgot to add spring onions – The downside to multi tasking. Actually , I am glad I didn’t because I am having it for lunch later today, I don’t exactly want onion breath even though I do have toothbrush and toothpaste at work, thing is I may not have time to clean my teeth afterwards as I have a busy day ahead or I will simply forget. I am not having my Brocamole with crudités as is tradition, I have decided to do something different, I am going with bread. I have sliced it into soldiers for easy dipping, I will be trying it out as a sandwich spread as well. The good thing about this dip is that you can actually freeze it. I will be shopping for ingredients this weekend then freeze in batches of small plastic containers – just the right portion.
For anyone who is interested the recipes goes like this:
Vegetable and Olive oils
Or black pepper – my version
Boil the broccoli for 3 minutes in hot boiling water. Drain, add ice water to the pot. Leave to cool.
In the meantime chop spring onions, cut lime in half.
Once broccoli is cold, put in food processor, blitz for seconds with oils.
Add spring onions squeeze lime juice then blitz to your preferred taste.
Season and serve.
I have to given word for word instructions from the book as I know you get the idea, besides I don’t really follow measurements as I am only cooking for myself, not 4 or 10 people as stated in most of these cookbooks. Oh, here is a clue to the author – Domestic Goddess. See my version below
PS. Let me know if you have tried this recipe or tweaked it a bit.
