This recipe is so amazing! If you often don’t know what to do with your broccoli stem or you tend to throw them away, you need to check this recipe out.

It’s a great way to use your broccoli 🥦 stems, you contribute to less waste, and it yields you more sauce 🙌. What more can you wish for 😃.

You could of course leave the broccoli stem out and it will keep tasting amazing!

Also make sure to use a strong mixer for this, for example a good Vitamix.

Feel free as well to replace the beans with something else of your liking, but I do recommend including some kind of protein source.

Make sure to check out the video recipe as well on Instagram, you’ll like it 😀.
