There is a lot of cheap brocolli in the shops at the moment and it is one of those veggies that you seem to throw away more than you keep, so after trimming the stalks the other night I thought about what I could do with them other than use in soups/stews etc.
As I am trying to reduce my carbohydrate intake I tried this:
Diced 100g of brocolli stalks
Put in the blender until they resemble the texture of rice/couscous
Steam for 5 minutes
Nutrition much the same as 100g of brocolli so; 34 calories, 0.4 fat, 7 carbs and 3 protein.
Result was pretty good and I will be using it again to substitute rice
