Broccoli, Shoots

all the flavor of broccoli with fewer florets stuck in your teeth

Broccoli shoots are the mini version of your grocery-store staple. They also include edible and delicious leaves and stems.

The succulent leaves are similar to kale but with a superior texture and sweet flavor.

Stems are similar to asparagus and can be separated and cooked a minute more add a little before (1-2 minutes) the leaves.

sweet, crisp, broccoli flavor, mild

 

prep tips

I would reccomend if you are cooking these to seperate the leaves from any thick stems. This will ensure even cooking and not overcooking the leaves

 

cooking tips + recipes

I love using this as "edible paintbrushes" by dipping them into some salad dressing or hummus. 


The leaves are incredibly succulent and I personally love their texture. They aren't as fibrous as kale and can be eaten raw or cooked.


The stems are also edible raw and are crunchy. when cooked they have a similar texture to asparagus.

 

storage notes:

If greens become limp - shock in ice water to revive leaves. Wrap broccoli loosely in a plastic bag/french terry/furoshiki/beeswax wrap and keep it in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator—store for up to a week.
