Broccoli

I have way too much broccoli that I need to use. My mom frequents the farmers' market and generously buys whatever looks good and gives it to me. Hate to waste it. Any ideas?

I add my vote to the roasted broccoli with marcona almonds and smoked paprika vinaigrette. It's my favorite broccoli recipe and confirmed broccoli haters enjoy it. Never left over.

And 2 more below, with votes for slow roasted broccoli and the first recipe with paprika and almonds. I'd also check out smitten kitchen. She has a great recipe for broccoli fritters.

Cook it then purée it in the blender with a little of the cooking water. Works great stirred into a pasta or rice dish. I sometimes add a few cloves of garlic to the purée. You can freeze it in an ice cube tray then have broccoli cubes to toss into sauces, stews or smoothies. (Although I wouldn't suggest using a garlic laced cube in a smoothie.)
