BROCCOLI STEM CHEESE // anti-food waste recipe

Hello everybody! The last time I made an anti-food so many of you liked it, so I am continuing this series, and I’ll also be turning all of these into a video. But for now, let’s talk about broccoli. I love and have always loved, broccoli, but for the longest time, I would throw away the stem and simply just eat the tops. But, during my zero waste journey, I have found that this stem is super-duper useful. You can use it in soups, but today we are going to make a vegan cheese sauce with it.

  1. Start by cutting the stem into smaller pieces and boil them in salted water for 5-7 minutes, or until they are soft enough to mash with a fork // 2. Transfer the pieces into a food processor, with the plant-milk, garlic, and nutritional yeast, then blend until combined. // 3. Now, add the turmeric and lemon juice and blend until smooth. // 4. Serve on top of pasta, and enjoy! (if needed you can reheat the sauce by turning it over the pasta while it’s still in the pot)
