Broccoli Christmas tree

This is a fun, easy holiday recipe….an ingenious idea for serving broccoli!

The ingredients and directions (from the chef’s video page) are below. Adding some cherry tomatoes so the tree has some red coloring would be fun too!

Christmas Broccoli Tree

Difficulty: Very Easy
Time: 5 min
Number of servings: 1 Christmas tree

Ingredients:
1 large broccoli crown
salt
Kewpie Mayonnaise
dressing of your choice
star-shaped processed cheese

Directions:
1. Lightly wash the broccoli crown and cut into bite-sized florets. Boil water in a large pot. Add a pinch of salt in the boiling water (salt removes oxalic acid – bitter taste, and makes the broccoli nice and green). Boil broccoli for about 3 minute. Drain and cool down until you can touch.
2. Pile up the broccoli florets on a plate and mold them with your hands to shape like a tree.
3. Decorate the tree with mayonnaise (like a garland) and place the star-shaped cheese (attach it with a toothpick) on top of the tree. Pour some dressing of your choice over the tree and eat ;D

The chef uses Kewpie (Japenese) mayonnaise for this recipe, which I found on Amazon. Check it out!
