Speciality diets are very topical at the moment and this recipe fits in nicely with both the Jamie Oliver Food Revolution September challenges and a request from the talented Marie-Elise over at http://www.mazwo.com
Hold onto your hats, we’re going raw, gluten-free, wheat-free, vegetarian…
A great friend shared this with us on a camping trip. I admit that at first I was rather sceptical about eating raw broccoli, and I expect others to be hesitant. Trust me though, it’s so good that you won’t be able to put the bowl down.
- Flaked Almonds
- Cheddar Cheese
- Salt & Pepper
Cut the broccoli into bitesize florets. Mix them in a bowl with some grated cheddar cheese, a scattering of raisins and flaked almonds, and then add just enough mayonnaise to bind it all together. Season and serve.
Top Tip: Once you’ve separated a floret from the stalk, slice into the base of the stem and pull it apart rather than just hacking it up. It’s more time consuming, but they split evenly and you don’t end up with lots of tiny pieces.
