Broccoli Onion Spread

Broccoli Onion Spread G. Giustolisi

Recipe from THE VEGETARIAN ITALIAN KITCHEN (New Holland Publishers, Australia)

A classic autumn comfort food that I love preparing with harvested vegetables from my garden. If you don’t believe this makes a difference, I recommend you give it a try. Vegetables grown without any pesticides have a mild taste and a delicate texture completely different to those sold in supermarkets. That is why even a simple cream like this is just great with the only addition being a high quality olive oil.
