Hi, yesterday I made VINE video with broccoli apple salad. And this is how I prepare broccoli.
Broccoli is partially cooked by blanching, so it is tender, yet crisp. This cooking method will keep the beautiful bright green color of broccoli.
Wish you have a lot of healthy food this weekend. The weather is perfect today, so I am going for a extra long walk just after this post. :)
Let’s get cooking!
How to Blanch Broccoli
Honey Dijon Mayonnaise dressing, to serve
Fill the pot with water and add in 1 tablespoon of salt. Then boil over high heat.
In a bowl, add in water and ice; set aside.
Cut the broccoli into florets.
Toss the broccoli florets into boiling water. And cook for one minute or more depending on the size of your florets.
Strain off the water using a colander. Then immediately toss the broccoli into iced water.
After one minute, strain again and serve with salad dressing.
