Broccoli Toppers

And no I don't mean melted Velveeta.  (Sorry...that was for the other half.)

OK...we know we're supposed to eat broccoli.  Green veggie.  Fiber.  Cancer-fighting properties.  All that jazz.

But is there a more boring vegetable than broccoli?  (OK..cauliflower is right up there too.)

Growing up, I learned to love the little stalks with just a touch of mayonnaise.  Creamy decadence that added something extra to all the healthiness.  So I was excited to run across a magazine page that offered up a couple of other topping ideas.  I liked them both.  Try them and see what you think.  (Supposedly the spicy components kick up the anti-cancer properties of the broccoli even more.)

  • Mix 1 tablespoon wasabi paste with 1 tablespoon sesame oil (I love the toasted version.) and a bit of soy sauce to taste.
  • Blend 1 tablespoon horseradish and 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt.  (Make extra if you're serving beef tenderloin alongside.)
