  • 1 small head broccoli
  • 1 ripe avocado

  • A squeeze of fresh lemon juice


  1. Chop your broccoli florets into small pieces. (Discard the stem - we will just be using the florets for this recipe.) Steam them until soft.
  2. In a small food processor or blender, puree the broccoli with the avocado, basil leaves and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
