The Fentons are always looking at new ways of growing, adding high tunnels and fences in areas that are heavily traveled by deer, or cultivating new and exciting produce.
Store unwashed broccoli in a plastic bag in the vegetable crisper in your fridge. Remove as much air as possible from the bag. Properly stored broccoli should stay fresh in the fridge for up to 10 days. When ready to use, wash broccoli well. Trim away the tough stems and any bad spots. If you can’t use all of your broccoli, steam until bright green and freeze in ziploc bags for later.
- Steam in a pot or in the microwave. Use only a little bit of water.
- Do not over cook broccoli – when it is bright green, it is done (5-7 min) and has the most nutrients.
- Stir-fry with a bit of broth or water. Leave a little crunch to your broccoli; it is better for you that way.
- Add lemon juice, vinegar, herbs, or pepper for extra flavor.
- Peel and slice broccoli stems like carrots sticks and serve with dip
- Add to pasta sauce, eggs, soup, or stir-fry.
- Serve with meat or fish, toss with pasta , or mix with a green salad - cooked or raw
Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Bake
This is an easy dish to take to a potluck or a sick friend. You can substitute the broccoli for kale or another green. Make extra and freeze it.
Ingredients (6 servings)
1. Preheat the oven to 350°
2. Sauté the onions in olive oil over medium-high heat until soft. Season with salt and pepper. Add the garlic; sauté another minute. Add the chicken and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the juice from one lemon and continue to cook for another 5– 10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
3. Spread the rice in the bottom of a medium glass baking dish. Cover with the broccoli and then the chicken and onions. Add more lemon juice (to taste) and cover with the cheese.
4. Mix lightly and bake covered (with aluminum foil) for about 20 minutes or until heated through. Remove the foil and continue to bake for another 5-10 minutes or until cheese is starting to drown.
Sautéed Sprouting BroccolI
Sprouting broccoli has a mustard-like bitterness that becomes mellowed by blanching briefly before sautéing.
Ingredients (4-6 servings)
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the 2 tablespoons of salt.
2. Fill a large mixing bowl with cool water and ice cubes.
3. Line a large plate with a few layers of paper towels.
4. Trim off and discard about an inch from the ends of the sprouting broccoli stems, then add the vegetable to the boiling water. Once the water returns to a boil, cook for 1 minute, then use tongs to transfer the vegetable to the ice-water bath just long enough to cool it completely. Transfer the vegetable to the plate.
5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Once the oil shimmers, add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds, stirring until it is just beginning to turn golden. Add the blanched sprouting broccoli, the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and the chilli flakes; cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetable is warmed through and tender.
6. Serve warm.
