GreenChef Julie Morris | Dairy Free Cheesy Broccoli Bowl

Posted By Julie Morris On June 10, 2009 @ 12:01 am In Full Recipe List,G/Videos,Recipes / Main Courses,Recipes / Raw,The Ingredient: Cheese | 9 Comments

I grew up on broccoli with cheese – my mother made it once a week. Such a delicious combo! Over the years I’ve turned her family classic into an even more eco-friendly and healthy modern dish . . . without sacrificing any of the flavor. This dairy-free and cholesterol-free version brims with calcium, iron and protein, while also complimented by all the wonderful antioxidants and polyphenols from the broccoli.

I like to serve this recipe “as is” (uncooked), enjoying the maximum nutritional potential of these great superfoods. If you’re craving a warm dish though, no worries — simply steam the florets lightly for a few minutes, then combine with the sauce. Either way, the delicious cheesy flavor and addictive broccoli crunch will have you coming back for a healthy second round every time.

Recipe after the jump.

Serves about 2

For the Recipe:


1 tsp Braggs Liquid Aminos

2 Tbsp raw tahini

1 Tbsp coconut oil, melted

1 Tbsp nutritional yeast

¼ tsp paprika

1/8 tsp garlic powder

1½ tsp lemon juice

3 cups finely chopped fresh broccoli florets

1 or 2 Tbsp hemp seeds

Water, if desired

Stir: In a small bowl, mix the nutritional yeast, paprika, and garlic powder together. Stir in the tahini. Pour in the Braggs, lemon juice, and coconut oil and whisk thoroughly. If a thinner sauce is desired, add a little water, a tablespoon at a time.

Combine: Put the broccoli into a larger bowl and pour sauce on top. Toss until evenly coated (for best results, use your hands!) Sprinkle top with hemp seeds and serve. Keeps refrigerated for several days.
