Sea of Green

I like what I like. On weekdays I don't want to experiment much. Give me dishes I love that are easy. Every once in a while I'll change things up. I love a good cauliflower mash, so why not try it with broccoli?

We made this delicious mash in 10 minutes and boy is it delicious! I served it with some pork tenderloin and roasted fennel, but it'd make an excellent ravioli filling or white pizza topping.

Broccoli Mash

*I used Laughing Cow wedges because I had two in the fridge and it made the mash a little lighter. Next time any finely grated cheese would work.

12 oz broccoli florets

2 light Laughing Cow wedges

1/2 tsp salt

splash of milk

Steam the broccoli until tender and bright green. Dump into a food processor with the salt and pulse until broken up. Add a splash of milk and the two Laughing Cow wedges and process until smooth and combined, scraping down the bowl as needed.

Just a little longer and I can put her to work on prep.
