Broccoli Salad Recipe

Broccoli is one of the healthiest things you can eat. It's a great source of vitamin C (break up with vitamin C tablets!), vitamin K, folate and potassium. It's also alkalising and high in fibre.

If you're haunted by a childhood of being forced to eat your broccoli before you could leave the table (we've all been there), we've got the perfect solution to help you forgive the broccoli! This delicious recipe features a peanut butter dressing.. who doesn't love that!?

Serves: 3ish
Prep: 5 mins
Cooking: less than 10 mins

Ingredients:

For the dressing:

  • 4 Tbs of crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 Tbs honey
  • 2 Tbs tamari
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • Warm water or Coconut milk

Method:

  1. Chop the broccoli and add to a steamer saucepan. Steam for about 5 minutes, until just cooked.
  2. In a small bowl or jug, mix the dressing ingredients with 1 or 2 Tbs of warm water until combined. Add more water as needed.
  3. Roughly chop the spring onions. Leave the bottom 5-6cm (plant them in the garden and they'll regrow for next time).
  4. Once cooked, drain the broccoli, rinse under cold water (to stop them from over cooking).
  5. In your serving bowl, add the broccoli, sprinkle with spring onions, pour over the dressing and top with KOJA Sesame & Almond.

Allergy/ Eating preference alternatives:
