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?

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.)

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.

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.
