So every week or 2 I’m going to try and do 3 ways with something that often gets thrown out….this week is broccoli, I particularly find myself throwing out the stalks, or even the heads if they have been sitting around too long. This ‘recipe’ is for a spot remedy, for using up broccoli that is way past being edible, even in a stock or soup!
If you have some fresh broccoli that’s perhaps past it’s best, a home made spot remedy is a super easy way to use it up. I put one small flourette of broccoli in a food processor along with a double shot of vodka and blend until it becomes a paste. Broccoli is high in vitamin A (yes A, not E) which is used in skin treatments which makes it great for this home made ‘spot pot’ as i call it. I love the strong aroma that it gives off, you can opt to add a dash of vanilla essence or mint to enhance the smell even more. This method would also work well with spinach and most greens that have high vitamin A. Apply just a dab to any spots or blemishes on the skin to help them clear up. I highly recommend NOT taking this orally! #vegan #crueltyfree #resourceful #leftovers #3wayswith
