Butter, booze, and...

Postby Sailor Kenshin » Thu Mar 23, 2017 4:32 pm

...broccoli! The first two make everything taste better. And I like broccoli.

Okay, baby bellas, too. As usual, forgot to take pic until food was 3/4 eaten.

This was an idea I got from reading James Beard, except he suggested it with turnips. You blanch the turnips while you butter-simmer some other vejable. Maybe he said onion.

But I thought, Why not broccoli? Blanched them while the bellas were sauteeing in butter. Drained broc, then tossed in a shot glass of marsala. It could be brandy, or sweet vermouth, or cream sherry. Or chicken stock, if you don't imbibe. Salt, pepper, and we couldn't stop eating.

It occurs to me you can blanch the broccoli or turnip or whatever well in advance. And then drain and refrigerate so you're not juggling two pots at once. And that this is going into our permanent rotation. :drunk:

Sounds like a good combination, my grand kids fave vege is broccoli , I do mine in a cheese sauce. I don't know any other kids that like broccoli . And shrooms another of my grandys faves. Well done.

I will have to give this a shot, looks really good. I have only liked broccoli 2 ways: smothered with cheese, or sauteed with bacon. As for the bellas, I will eat them any way but raw. 8)

Thanks. My two 'usual' ways to cook broc is sauteed in olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes, or barely warm with mayo and that 'fruit shake.' The name of which I forget. Tajin? Maybe?

We liked it so much that we'll try it on all sorts of veg now.
