This recipe is great hot or cold and is really versatile. Serve as a side or as a meal in itself (just add some cheese or protein). Even the kids can make this Broccoli & Quinoa ‘Rice’. Such a great option if you’re trying to reduce carbs.


Ingredients (serves 6)

  • 2-3 cups Broccoli (cut into florets including stems)
  • 1 cup Cooked Quinoa
  • 1tbsp White, Black or Red Chia Seeds
  • 1 tbsp Linseeds
  • 2 tbsp Toasted Almonds (optional & not included in this recipe)

Method

  1. Lightly steam the broccoli florets (you don't want it too mushy - leave it with a little crunch), spread out onto paper towel to cool down and lightly pat to dry out.
  2. Divide the broccoli into 2 or 3 batches and blitz in your food processor until it resembles rough breadcrumbs (watch closely as it happens really, really fast - literally seconds - and if you go too far, you end up with mush).
  3. Combine the broccoli and all other ingredients and lightly toss. You can season however you like - a drizzle of olive oil, salt & pepper, some paprika or add some toasted coconut.

Notes... I'm trying to include a lot more broccoli in our diet at the moment as I read it is a good skin food. Instead of just the usual in stir fry or plain steamed, I tried this tonight. I've made cauliflower rice before but this BROCCOLI rice was far more popular with everyone.
