Tips

Sweet Baby Broccoli can be eaten raw or cooked.

In the store, shop for bunches that are rich green in color with crisp stalks and tightly closed buds.

Sweet Baby Broccoli is best if used right away, but will keep for a few days in the refrigerator. To store, wrap unwashed broccoli in plastic wrap or sealed bag and place in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.

Prior to consumption, wash the florets and stalks in cold water. If necessary, trim ends slightly.

Sweet Baby Broccoli and Bulgur Wheat Salad with Caramelized Shallots and Walnuts

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Bulgur wheat
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  • Zest of ½ lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 large shallots, finely sliced
  • 1 bunch Josie's Organics sweet baby broccoli, washed and bottoms trimmed, cut into ¼" pieces
  • ¼ cup walnut pieces, toasted (optional)
  • Kosher salt to taste

Serves 6

In a medium pot, bring the broth to a boil on medium-high heat. Stir in the Bulgur wheat and turn the heat down to medium-low. Let cook about 10 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed. Take off the heat and stir in the lemon zest. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet on medium-high. Add the shallots and cook 5-7 minutes until caramelized – stir frequently so the shallots brown evenly. Remove from the skillet and set aside on a plate. Place the baby broccoli in the pan and let cook 5-7 minutes until tender and the edges are slightly brown. Toss with tongs every couple of minutes.

Add the Bulgur wheat and shallots to the sweet baby broccoli. Toss together well and heat through about 2 minutes. Fold in walnuts. Season with salt.

Serve.
