Warm creamy Broccoli Pasta recipe – a delicious healthy dinner
2 x organic broccoli heads, chopped into florets
1/4 cup milk of choice
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp warm water
1 tbsp parmesan cheese shavings (optional)
salt, to taste,
black pepper, to taste
chilli flakes, to taste
1 packet of mung bean or brown rice pasta
chopped basil, to taste
Steam or boil the broccoli heads until they’re soft. Cut them into florets.
While the broccoli is steaming, cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
When the broccoli is cooked, place the broccoli in a food processor. Add the milk, olive oil, salt, pepper, chilli and parmesan (if using). Blitz until you’ve reached a creamy pure.
Once the pasta is cooked, strain it and place it back into the pot. Add the broccoli sauce and stir it until the pasta is well coated.
To serve, divide the pasta between bowls and top with extra parmesan and chopped basil.
