Broccoli. It really is my all-time favorite food, ever! If I had to pick one food to survive the apocalypse it would definitely be broccoli. Mommy always reminds me its an anti-carcinogen, too. Even better in case of nuclear fallout!
I wanted to experiment with the same anise ginger flavor I had prepared my Cauliflower Cashew soup with last week, so I browned the anise seeds in oil, added some shallots, garlic and fresh grated ginger, plus some peperoncino. Then I added the broccoli with enough water to cover it, salt and pepper then some potatoes. I simmed it until everything was soft, then decided not to puree it. This is a perfect lunch food, very filling and energy packed.
