  • 1 Large clove of garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1/4 Small onion, chopped
  • 1 Small or ½ large avocado
  • 1 tbsp Smooth cashew nut butter, or a handful of cashew nuts (ideally soaked in water to soften for 2+ hours)

  • 1 Lime, juiced or lemon
  • 4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil, and extra for drizzling

  • Chop the broccoli into equal size pieces, including the stem. If the stem is tough use a potato peeler to peel away the outer layer.
  • Put the broccoli pieces in a saucepan with 100mls water, cover with a lid so it can steam on a medium heat for 5 minutes until just tender.
  • Add the steamed broccoli with the other ingredients to a food processor or good blender, along with 1-2tbsp of the cooking water, blend until smooth.
  • Serve warm or cold with a drizzle of olive oil.
