Broccomole



Broccomole was on my list of must-try's for a few months, and I finally made it this week. I am always up for trying new ways to enjoy broccoli and this is one of the most creative I've ever seen. This simple spread was ready in a matter of minutes, and I immediately enjoyed some with a few pieces of melba toast. I stored the rest in the fridge for a picnic lunch the next day, when we enjoyed it on top of mini whole wheat pitas with tomato slices, perfect!

This spread has my imagination going, I think I might try blending some tomatoes right in. Perhaps chickpeas in going the direction of broccoli hummus? I'll let you know if this develops into something new, but for now it is great just the way it is! Thanks to Johanna at Green Gourmet Giraffe for sharing this one.
