Broccoli-Garlic Sauce
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: about 2 cups
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 medium Yukon Gold potato, peeled and chopped (about 1½ cups)
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, halved
  1. Place the broccoli, potatoes, and garlic into a medium saucepan with just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are very tender when pierced with a knife.
  3. Use as slotted spoon to transfer the cooked vegetables and ½ cup of the cooking water to a food processor then pulse 4 to 5 times, adding more cooking water as needed. The sauce should have a somewhat coarse texture, with tiny bits of broccoli still visible (overblending can dull the flavors).
For a richer sauce, add 1 tablespoon of tahini (ground sesame seed paste) or almond butter to the food processor in step 3.
