BroccoLeaf is the newest member of the Super Greens family. BroccoLeaf is a delicious and mild green for the nutritional punch it packs. Simply cook and serve as is or use this recipe as a base for almost any culinary creation you can imagine.
- 1 bunch BroccoLeaf
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon minced or sliced fresh garlic
- 1 pinch crushed red chili flakes
- Trim the BroccoLeaf stems where they meet the leaves. Reserve the stems for fresh BroccoLeaf juice. Roll the trimmed leaves lengthwise so they resemble a rolled cigar. Holding the roll with one hand, slice the leaves crosswise into thin ½” wide “noodles”.
- Heat a medium-size non-stick sauté pan or cast iron skillet; 9-1/2 inches in diameter is best. Add the olive oil and heat just until it ripples. Add the garlic, stir and sauté just until it begins to caramelize.
- Add the BroccoLeaf “noodles” and water, cover and steam for 2 minutes. When the BroccoLeaf is soft and bright green, season to taste with crushed red chili flakes.
