  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 teaspoons nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large leaves flat-leaf kale or collard greens

  1. Place broccoli in a saucepan with about 2 inches water and bring to a boil. Cover and let cook for about 5 to 8 minutes, or until broccoli is softened. Drain.
  2. Place broccoli, olive oil, garlic, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper in a food processor, and blend until smooth. Set aside.
