Broccoli Leaves

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi, My broccoli has huge leaves. Does anyone know any recipe which I can use to cook them.  No broccoli heads, just the leaves. Thanks!

They tend to be bitter.

OK Chef Edb. Thanks.  Such a shame to throw them away.  I was hoping there would be some sort of soup which I could use them in.  Its the first time I've grown broccoli, but the summer here has been unseasonably warm, so I've pulled them up.  We've got family staying soon and I was hoping to show them my culinary skills by giving them something to eat with my home grown broccoli leaves!!!! ah well...... :o(

The stem however can be cut julianne  mixed with carrotts and made into a Broccoli Slaw

which is very healthy and tasty. Make it like a regular cole slaw.

Could they be boiled in two changes of water, to remove the bitterness?

I have never tried it but it is possible. As it is not worth the time to me. Try It

You could get a dehydrator and dehydrate them? Make them in to 'chip'

thingies? I do it with kale...

 

Broccoli leaves....I've never really seen them big at all! :)
