About this Fabulous Broccoli Rice recipe
1 large head broccoli
3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic, minced
2 tbsp. unsalted butter, ghee, olive oil, or bacon fat
2 tsp. salt
Fresh cracked pepper, to taste
Rice the Broccoli
- Rinse and trim the stem of the broccoli so that 2 inches remain. Break it into large sections. Place half of the broccoli at a time into a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Pulse just until no large pieces remain – for a texture roughly resembling rice.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat with olive oil. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds until aromatic. Do not let the garlic develop any color.
- Stir in the broccoli rice along with your preferred fat, salt, and a few grinds of black pepper. Cook until the fat is melted and the broccoli is tender – taste and remove quickly because the broccoli will continue to steam cook. Enjoy hot and fresh with lemon juice or as a side to chicken or fish.
