BROCCOLI SALAD WITH BASIL & SPICY AIOLI

On March 25, 2014 by Tina Diep

broccoli saladUnlike most kids, broccoli was one of my favorite vegetables as a child – there was something about the taste and texture that I really loved. My mum used to sauté these all the time with soy sauce, a common Asian way of preparing them. I still love broccoli today, and this dish is great way to enjoy it. 
I usually end up eating the florets and throwing the stalks away, as they are tougher to eat and slightly more bitter. For this dish we can add the stalks since baking softens them up.broccoli florets and stalksBaked broccoli
