Broccoli Puree

This is a Giada De Laurentiis recipe but I changed mine up a bit due to the fact that I didn't have cream cheese, the right kind of potato or enough broccoli and I didn't want to steam the veggies separately as I figured that was a waste of time. I thought this was absolutely delicious and I felt much better about eating mashed potatoes as they were full of green veggies.

Nell's Broccoli Puree

3 Yukon gold potatoes
2 handfuls of broccoli florets
approx 1/3 cup grated parmesan
splash of chicken stock
2-3 Tbsp lowfat sour cream
salt and pepper

Cut potatoes into quaters and steam with broccoli so they finish at about the same time. Put potaoes into a bowl and mash very well. Puree broccoli, splash of chicken stock, parmesan, sour cream, salt and pepper in a food processor (I used my mini-prep). Add to mashed potatoes and mix well. You may need to warm it up a bit in the microwave to bring back up to temperature.

Serves 2.

What a good way to get people to eat their broccoli - adding cheese and sour cream! Brilliant! :)
