Mollie Katzen’s The Enchanted Broccoli Forest

Mollie Katzen’s The Enchanted Broccoli Forest


  • 2 cups brown or white rice
  • 1 pound fresh broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon butter or canola oil (plus a little extra for the pan)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh dill (or 2 teaspoons dried)
  • 3 tablespoons fresh mint (or 3 teaspoons dried)
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • pepper to taste
  • cayenne to taste
  • Options:
  • 1/2 cup toasted sunflower seeds
  • 1/4 pound Swiss or cheddar cheese, grated
  • a little extra butter for the top


      1. Trim the tough bottoms from the broccoli stalks and cut the tops into smallish spears of whatever size suits you.
      2. Preheat oven to 325° F.
      3. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan. Melt the butter or heat the oil in a large, deep skillet or Dutch oven. Add the onion and salt and saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the onion begins to soften. Add the garlic and the lemon juice and saute for about 2 minutes longer. Stir in the rice, some black pepper and cayenne to taste along with the optional ingredients. Taste to correct salt, if necessary, and spread in the prepared pan.
      4. Now the fun part. Arrange the broccoli upright in the rice, and, if desired, drizzle with melted butter. Cover loosely with foil and bake just until heated through (15 -20 minutes). Serve right away.


Shredded Kale Salad with Pecan Parmesan and Cranberries

Shredded Kale Salad with Pecan Parmesan and Cranberries

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, soy-free

By Angela Liddon

  • 2 medium bunches destemmed Lacinato/dinosaur kale, finely chopped (8 cups chopped)
  • 2 large garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)
  • 3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (just eyeball it)
  • 1-2 handfuls dried sweetened cranberries, for garnish
  • 1 cup pecan halves, toasted
  • 1.5 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 pinches fine grain sea salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 300F. Spread the pecans onto a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8-10 minutes until fragrant and lightly golden.
  2. Remove the stems from the kale and discard (you can save for smoothies if you are hard core!). Finely chop the kale leaves (the smaller, the better!).
  3. Wash the kale and spin dry. Place dried kale into a large bowl.
  4. For the dressing: In a mini food processor, process the garlic until minced. Now add the lemon, oil, salt, and pepper and process until combined. Adjust to taste, if desired. Pour the dressing onto the kale and mix it into the kale with your hands or toss with spoons. Keep mixing for about 1 minute to ensure everything is coated perfectly.
  5. For the pecan parm: Rinse out the mini processor and pat dry. Add the pecans into the processor and process until the pecans are the size of peas or a bit larger. Now add in the nutritional yeast, oil, and salt and process again until it’s a coarse crumb. Be sure not to over-process – we still want a nice crunchy texture here, not powder.
  6. Sprinkle the pecan Parmesan all over the salad. Toss on a handful or two of dried cranberries. Wrap and place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes to soften. I tried letting this salad sit overnight in the fridge and I greatly preferred the flavour of the salad servedthe day of, so Idon’trecommend making this salad the day before and letting it sit in the fridge overnight.

Note: 1) Instead of a mini processor, you can chop/whisk the dressing and pecan “parmesan” by hand. 2) For a nut-free version, try using breadcrumbs instead of pecans.

Spicy Onions and Bell Peppers in Yogurt Sauce over Corn Bread

 Spicy Onions and Bell Peppers in Yogurt Sauce over Corn Bread


The key to the creamy sauce in this recipe is yogurt, which perfectly balances the intense flavors of the onion, garlic, and spices. Recipe-tester Larry says that whole-grain bread works well in place of the corn bread and that nondairy yogurt can be substituted. The sauce also goes well with curried basmati rice. Angelic Organics Kitchen (adapted from The Moosewood Cookbook).

Serves 4

1 loaf corn bread

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or butter

2 cups  thinly sliced onion (about 3 medium onions)

1/2 teaspoon salt

3 medium bell peppers, stems and seeds removed, thinly sliced

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin freshly ground black pepper cayenne pepper (or less, to taste)

3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 1/2 teaspoons)

1/2–3/4 cup yogurt


1. Set the oven to its warm setting or preheat it to 200° F. Wrap the corn bread in aluminum foil and place it in the oven to warm.

2. Heat the oil or butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and salt; cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is very soft and just beginning to brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Add the bell peppers, cumin, and black pepper and cayenne to taste. Cook until the bell peppers are tender, about 10 minutes. Add the chopped garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 minute more.

4. Remove the skillet from heat. Stir in 1/2 cup of the yogurt. If you would like a creamier sauce, add the rest of the yogurt.

5. Tear the warm bread into chunks and place it on individual plates. Spoon the onion sauce over the bread. Serve immediately.
