Make a guacamole with the broccoli stem

There is no reason to throw away the broccoli stem or trunk, as it is perfectly edible and with it you can prepare several recipes, such as this simple, smooth and healthy broccoli stem guacamole. The broccoli stem is as delicious as the florets, but its flavor is slightly milder. In addition to this similarity, it is also healthy like broccoli, as it is a source of protein, fiber, as well as vitamins and minerals. A good idea is to combine this preparation with healthy snacks made with broccoli florets. In this way, you will get a complete, delicious and very healthy snack, with high amounts of protein. You will find both recipes below. How to cook broccoli stem? The broccoli stem has a skin that is very fibrous and hardens as it moves away from the broccoli florets. Therefore, it is convenient to cut the last 3 centimeters of the trunk. The rest of the broccoli stalk, even though it may appear tough, will soften with cooking and processing. Depending on the recipe, it is sometimes best to peel it, but if you are boiling it to make a broccoli guacamole, you can leave the skin on. Ingredients: Broccoli stem 2 or 3 heads of garlic Olive oil Lemon Cumin Sweet paprika Salt Preparation: Cut the stem of the broccoli into thin slices, so that it cooks better. Discard the last few inches of the trunk. Place them in a saucepan, cover them with water and cook them until they are tender. Drain and cool in a bowl of ice and water. In the glass of the blender or in a food processor add the broccoli stems with the other ingredients, to taste. Beat for 1 minute or until smooth. Pack in a container with a lid and keep in the refrigerator.When serving, sprinkle a little sweet paprika on top. Snacks of florets to accompany the guacamole A good idea to accompany the guacamole with broccoli stalks is to cook the florets in the oven. In this way, they will be crunchy as if they were snacks, and you can enjoy a perfect combination of flavors and textures, without carbohydrates. To do this, you just have to season the broccoli flowers with oil, salt, pepper and with the herbs or spices of your choice. Then wrap them in foil packets and bake for about 25 minutes at 180 ℃.
