If football is a spectacle, then make your food a spectacle too. If you’re going to have bowls of dip and munchies sitting out for football-coma-induced grazers, then why not something pretty and healthy? This Seahawks Broccomole Super Bowl, which looks like MetLife Stadium, is sure to be the centerpiece of your food spread. If your food is healthy and beautiful, then people are sure to look at it and nibble on it. Providing healthy options at your party sets you apart as a super hostess. And this is the most important Super Bowl Party since 2005–the last time the Seahawks were in the big game. It’s best you echo the fever-pitch of the region with epic tasting, looking, and healthy food.
Guacamole + Broccoli = Broccomole
This creamy dip tastes like broccoli and guacamole had a love-child. What I love most about the “broccomole” dip is that it has the same zesty flavors of lime, cilantro, and creamy avocado. Another great feature of Broccomole is the main ingredient is broccoli stems– the part that I usually end up throwing away. It’s delicious and easy on your wallet.
1 ½ cups cooked broccoli stems, tough outer layers peeled off
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
½ tomato, diced ½ cup fresh salsa
1 scallion, sliced
1 canned green chili, chopped 1/2 (4 oz) can green chili
I added 1 cup Greek yogurt
I added ½ medium avocado
In a food processor, blend the broccoli stems with the lemon juice, cumin, and garlic powder until completely smooth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well by hand, but do not blend. Chill before serving for best flavor. (/del>
In your Oster Steamer, steam broccoli stems fr 9-10 minutes until tender. In a your NINJA, blend the broccoli stems with the lime juice, cumin, yogurt, and garlic powder until completely smooth. Add the salsa and mix well by hand, but do not blend. Chill for 1 hour before serving.
You will need:
A small and a medium casserole dish
2 pipe cleaners
Assorted veggies for dipping, cut into long straws – the brighter and more varied the better
Ricotta cheese or Greek Yogurt
A piping bag with a fine tip OR a sandwich-size ziplock bag and a pair of scissors
Make your Broccomole Super Bowl
To put your Seahawks Broccomole Super Bowl together: Create two end-posts with pipe cleaners. I chose Seahawks colors: blue and green. Pour dip into small casserole dish and smooth the top with a spatula. Scoop 3-4 heaping tablespoons full of ricotta or Greek yogurt into the piping bag and twist at about the middle to keep the extras from oozing out the top. Decorate your “field” with end zones and yard lines. That’s the hardest part. Decorate the field with cherry tomatoes and radishes and fill the stands in alternating colors with veggie “fans”. It’s almost too pretty to eat.. almost.
