The recipe was created as a need of trying to convince my kiddos to eat more broccoli - of which they're no the biggest fans in the world... My way of thinking here, was along the lines of a green pesto, and it turned out rather well, if I may say so myself ;) Hope you'll give it a go, as it's the perfect companion for picnics, parties, or simply an interesting and healthy way of satisfying your snack cravings.

How to make it...

- 1 big broccoli, or 2 small ones
- 1 onion, sliced
- 2 cloves of garlic, roughly sliced
- 5 Tbsp olive oil
- 2 Tbsp nutritional flakes
- salt and black pepper to taste


- Divide the broccoli florets into small pieces, clean and slice the broccoli stem into 1 cm thick pieces.
- Blanch the broccoli florets in salted, boiling water for no more than 2 minutes.
- Simmer the broccoli stem pieces in salted, boiling water for 5 minutes.
- Heat up a medium-size frying pan and pour 1 Tbsp of oil into in, add sliced onion and garlic. 
- Fry on a medium heat until onion becomes soft and lightly brown. Take off the heat and cool down.
- Put the broccoli, fried onion with garlic, nutritional flakes and olive oil into a kitchen blender, big enough to hold all the ingredients. Blend everything together, stopping sometimes to scrape the sides, if needed. You can add more olive oil if you want softer/smoother consistency of the pâté.
- How long you'll blend it depends on you - what kind of consistency you like.
- Keep the pâté in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week maximum.

✅ You can experiment with the flavour and add other spices of your choice, or even more veggies (for ex. grilled courgette). This pâté/spread is very east to customise to your own taste!
