Check out raw chef Dan's free recipe for broccoli loaf.
I tried it today. I opened my pine nuts and they smelled fishy so I tossed them and used macadamias. Well my loaf certainly did not look like his. In fact after 8 ish hours in the D it was a crumbly mess. Would the pine nuts have made a huge difference? I wouldn't have thought so and this is yet another recipe that just disappointed me. I did everything else exactly as he said. Would love to hear if I blew it my using macadamias. Anyone??

The Mac's are a softer Nut. I have never had Pine Nuts to go bad. I keep mine in the Fridge for Months. How was the FLAVOR?

Spicyful, I didn't even want to taste one they smelled so fishy. I may go buy some more and try again because like VFL says they look really good don't they?

There is no liquid in this recipe. I know this is a thick loaf of bread that takes 10 hours to dry, but what holds it together? When he says "blend to desired consistency" I'm guessing that means to blend it until a certain amount of juice is released from the broccoli and the mixture is somewhat mushy.
Also, I doubt that the type of nut makes a difference, but if you're measuring by volume, in cups, large , round nuts would have a lot more space between them than small, oblong nuts, so there ends up being less nut to go around. You might want to chop the macadamias a little bit before measuring.
Thirdly, the picture is hard to decipher as far as the dimensions of the loaves. Is that all three loaves cut up in the pic? How big are they?
I'm sure this is tasty, though, once you figure it out...

That makes sense. If I try it again with pine nuts I will process till it gets more liquidy for sure. It held together well when I shaped the loaves. But not enough to cut.

I have definitely had pine nuts go rancid.
Ani Phyo recommends keeping them in the freezer, so that's what I do now.
If anyone successfully makes the broccoli loaf, please let us know. It sounds awesome (in theory :D)!
