Spiralizing broccoli is tricky, but possible.
If you’ve never had spiralized broccoli before, your mind will be blown when you have it – it has a texture similar to that of an al dente spaghetti noodle.
Plus, it’s pretty cool to literally use 100% of a vegetable (because, of course, you can use the florets too!)
When my girl Gina from Skinnytaste made this Roasted Broccoli Parmesan, I immediately thought of this dish – why not spiralize the stems, toss it together and add some chicken for protein to make this a comforting, complete dish.
If you don’t eat meat/chicken, this would work really well with Great Northern or cannellini beans. If you eat tofu, some roasted tofu cubes would be great as well.
It’s also a fun dish to eat, it’s like a mini indulgence to share with someone else — or just keep the leftovers for yourself. Speaking of leftovers, this dish reheats well, so pack it for lunch!
If you can’t find a broccoli stem large enough to spiralize, use any other veggie — everything goes with melted mozzarella and tomato sauce! Just keep the moisture content low, so avoid zucchini noodles. Instead, try sweet potato noodles for some more heartiness!
Comfort meals like this make me so happy this time of year. It reminds me of family and all of the enjoyable things in life – like cheese 🙂
