A Broccoli Challenge

Hi, my name is Kelly and I am in love with broccoli. Yes, it’s true. I sat down to dinner (Sautéed shrimp with couscous and broccoli) with my husband tonight and expressed my love for broccoli. I then realized I only ever cook and eat it one way – steamed. No butter, no S&P, no sautéed garlic. Just broccoli in all its green glory.

While I am not really worried about my addiction because, come on, it’s broccoli, my realization spurred an idea. I am issuing myself a Broccoli Challenge: To dish up broccoli in new and creative ways during the next month. I am committing to 4 new broccoli inspired dishes.

And, I’m inviting others to join me! Maybe you are also in a rut or perhaps you don’t love broccoli as much as I? - All good reasons to participate in the challenge yourself! Try 1, 2 or as many new recipes as you'd like.

Here’s how it works:
• Create meals, snacks and recipes using broccoli as either the main ingredient or a co-star of the dish. Post to your blog AND reference the Broccoli Challenge (see link below).
• Send your posts and recipe name to me at
• Don’t be afraid to get creative!

I will list your post on my blog along with my own Broccoli Challenge pursuits. Check back each week to see how the broccoli creativity unfolds.

Let the Broccoli Challenge begin!

  4. Kelly, Bob and I are leaving for a month of travel in North Africa and Europe. The timing of the challenge won't work for me. I do have loads of broccoli recipes you could use though. Let me know if that would work for you and we'll see what we can do. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
