December 25, 2013 • Nancy Wolfson-Moche

I couldn’t resist…  


serves 4


1 head broccoli

1/2 beet

pinch of sea salt

1 lemon

Process  Wash the broccoli well.


Cut the stem off of the broccoli. Tear the florets apart, leaving them in large pieces.


Place broccoli pieces into steamer basket. Put about 2 inches of water into a steamer pot (here, I used a pasta pot with steamer insert). Cover and bring to a boil. Place steamer basket in pot, cover and let steam until broccoli turns a bright green (about 1 minute). Remove from pot;


arrange in a serving bowl.


Peel the beet and grate it, using a box grater, medium grade.


Sprinkle on top of broccoli in serving dish.


Add a pinch of sea salt and squeeze fresh lemon on top.

Just a quick note to say K is really enjoying your class. He was excited to make the sushi and the falafel the previous week was awesome- we have been trying (unsuccessfully) for years to get him to eat falafel and so hearing him say he likes falafel now was a breakthrough for us!  Thanks!
