"A special spread with broccoli and nuts, whose taste became our favorite at first sight"

Ingredients

  • broccoli - 10.5 oz (300 g)
  • lemons - 1 pc. (medium - sized)
  • almonds - 2 tbsp. (peeled, ground)
  • olive oil - 3 1/3 tbsp (50 ml)
  • garlic - 1 - 2 cloves
  • cumin - 1 pinch
  • black pepper - 1 pinch
  • walnuts - 1.2 oz (35 g)
  • salt - by taste
measures

How to cook

Divide the broccoli into pieces, by keeping their stumps as well and cut them into large pieces.

Put water with a pinch or two of salt on the stove. When it boils, put the broccoli along with the stumps inside and boil them for 10 minutes.

Remove them with a slotted spoon and pour cold water over the vegetables. If you think that the stumps are not soft enough, you can boil them for another 2-3 minutes.

Leave the broccoli to cool, during which time squeeze the lemon juice and clean the garlic cloves.

Put all of the products in a blender - boiled and cooled broccoli, garlic, olive oil, walnuts, ground almonds (or whole), freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt and spices.

Blend into a smooth consistency.

I use a blender because most of the time I leave the broccoli a little harder, al dente - so they retain more of their vitamins. But if you have cooked them more and they are very soft, you can also use a liquidizer. Even if you fail to grind the walnuts perfectly with it, it's not a problem. It's also pleasant to feel pieces of them in the spread.

Serve the delicious and healthy broccoli, walnut and almond spread in the company of crackers or toasted slices of bread.

Enjoy your meal!
