Breadfruit Broccoli Eggs photo bbeggs2_zpsfgsspnoh.png

I. Love. Broccoli. I eat the stems raw after removing the fibrous outer skin, and steam the moss-like heads and eat them just like that. Whenever I steam broccoli (which is often), I always leave back a few florets to cook with eggs. Sometimes it's fried eggs with broccoli and other times, I add cheese to the mix. So good!

To keep the broccoli green after steaming, and for this fry up, here is what to do:

  • Add water to a saucepan and insert a steam rack (metal racks are for perfect for this). Cover pot, place over medium heat, and bring to a boil.
  • Drop in broccoli, cover and steam for 4 minutes - longer if you like your broccoli softer.
  • Remove broccoli and place on wire rack to cool. Leaving the broccoli in the hot pot even with the heat turned off will continue to cook the broccoli - it will turn to mush in your mouth when eaten and dull green, in colour.

You got this right? If you want specific directions for cooking the eggs and broccoli, click here.
