OK, peeps.....I see we let our Iron Chef weekly threads fall to the wayside, and now that fall is upon us, I bet a lot more of us will be back in the kitchen since it's cool enough to be slaving over pots and casseroles and all manner of comfort foods.<br><br>
I've been craving broccoli lately and am dying to find some new things to do with it. Turn your creativity loose and share your favorite recipes!<br><br>
For our newer foodie friends, we were doing this every week as a takeoff on the Food Channel Iron Chef show. Each week we pick a new ingredient and everyone has to either share a favorite recipe using it, or if you have time, make one up, try it and share. If you have suggestions for future week's ingredients, please feel free to start a thread at the beginning of any week.<br><br>
Past ingredients we have already done include: pears, winter squash, quinoa and peaches, and there are great recipe ideas in each of those threads.<br><br>
So, let's get cooking. In the words of our chairman:<br><br>
ALLEZ CUISINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2-4 cloves garlic, minced (use garlic to preference)<br>
1/4 teaspoon salt<br>
1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets<br>
1/4 cup olive oil<br>
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar<br>
1.5 tablespoon Dijon mustard<br><br>
In a medium bowl, mix garlic, salt, olive oil, vinegar, and mustard.<br>
Add the broccoli, and stir to coat.<br>
Chill for 3 hours.<br>
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving, if desired.<br><br>
**You can use red wine vinegar instead of balsamic for a twist.

I picked up this recipe at a "Healthy Eating on the Run" class I took several years ago. I could eat this stuff all day:<br><br><b>Broccoli-Peanut Salad</b><br>
~6 C broccoli, chopped<br>
1/2 C red onion, chopped<br>
1/2 C raisins<br>
4oz peanuts, chopped<br>
1/2 C low fat mayo<br>
1/2 C fat free sour cream<br>
1 Tbl honey<br>
Pinch ground ginger<br>
pinch ground white pepper<br><br>
Combine broccoli, onions, raisins, and peanuts in a large bowl and toss to mix well. In a small bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Add the dressing to the broccoli mixture and toss.
