- 200g polenta
- 800ml water or vegetable stock
- 1 medium-sized head of broccoli
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
Step by step
1.Cut broccoli into the many little “trees” that are part of it. Steam it or place it in the microwave until it softens. Mash the broccoli with a fork into small pieces.
2.Boil water or vegetable stock together with salt and pepper.
3.When it starts boiling, lower the heat and add the polenta. Stir fast for 5 minutes, so it does not stick, until polenta is boiled and we get a thick dough.
4.Remove from heat. Add mashed broccoli with olive oil and stir until well mixed.
5.Grease a tray with olive oil: Pour and knead the dough to half/1 cm thick. Let cool.
6.Once cool, unmould the polenta. Cut the sticks approximately 1 cm wide.
7.Before serving, brown in a pan with a little olive oil.
Did you know broccoli is high in calcium and we absorb it very easily? Not only dairy products are high in calcium. Almonds, legumes and seeds are a good source of calcium as well.
Remember, to have strong bones, we need not only sun, but also exercise!
