View Full Version : Raw Broccoli recipes?
02-07-2008, 12:40 PM
I've always disliked broccoli, but I bought a few bunches at a farmers market and now I'm trying to figure out what to do with them. I don't want to make a soup, but should I marinate them? Does anyone have any good broccoli recipes (preferably simple, but I will try the complex ones if they are good) that don't require a dehydrator?
Thanks so much for any help!! :)

My hubby LOVES marinated broccoli - some herbs of your choice, some apple cider vinegar, a little sea salt and he puts hot sauce in his.
My daughter really likes a marinade made from:
namu or braggs
orange juice from one orange
2 soaked dates
Sprinkle with raw sesame seeds
has a great oriental taste :)
Sorry, don't have the recipe handy to give exact amounts

I mix the florets in a bowl w diced onion, raisins, sunflower seeds, and a dressing made from blended cashews, water, avc, and agave - delish! ~ Cathy

I chop it up into bite size pieces with some other veggies (normally red pepper and mini-corn) and marinate in Snowdrop's sesame sauce, stick in the dehydrator to soften and sprinkle with sesame seeds. It tastes exactly like lightly steamed or stir fried broccoli.

I adore Alissa's broccoli soup.
I also like chopping up broccoli, with onion, mushroom, avocado, tomato, and mixing with olive oil, cider vinegar, braggs, cayenne.
You can add anything else - sprouts, radishes, seeds etc
I find I need the avocado to soften the whole thing. Without it, its hard to chew.

The hard to chew part is what always gets me too! :)
Thanks for all the great suggestions. They will get tried out tonight. Maybe I'll make a marinated broccoli/ avocado paste and put it in a collard green.... hmmm. The marinating sounds yummy because it is the toughness that I think puts me off of broccoli to begin with.

I find that by combining and processing foods in my food processor, the taste changes, AND I don't have to "chew" as much!

Ani Phyo has a recipe for spicy broccoli mash in her book that I think she says is one of her favorites. I haven't made it yet, but it does look pretty tasty..

Hi again, clvb,
I posted a FANTASTIC brocoli recipe on another recent thread. The recipe is for brocoli salad. Here's a link to it: http://rawfoodtalk.com/showthread.php?t=38137&highlight=broccoli+recipes

Recipe sounds great and I have some Broccoli to use up.
Can I replace the Miso in the 'Brazil-broccoli mash' with anything for the gravy as I don't have any of that?

Alissa's Soup hands down. I add more salt and cumin to the recipe and eat it right after making it. The taste some how changes and it's not as good if I refridgerate it for later.
When I want to make a portion just for me I split the recipe in half and makes just the right amount for a filling lunch. So yummy!!!!!!!
