Broccoli-stuffed potatoes
Nothing says comfort food quite like baked potatoes topped with all the fixings. Requiring just six basic ingredients, this homemade version is full of all the broccoli and cheese your heart desires — but with only 106 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Cooking time: 75 minutes.

4 medium baking potatoes (about 7 1/2 ounces each)
2 cups broccoli (frozen or fresh)
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1/2 cup shredded, low-fat Cheddar cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced

Directions
Yield: 8 stuffed potato halves
Serving size: 1 stuffed potato half

1 – Scrub baking potatoes, pierce with fork several times, and place on baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for approximately 60 minutes until the potatoes are tender. Meanwhile, place the broccoli in a small pot, add a small amount of water, and cover. Cook the broccoli until it is just tender. Drain broccoli, chop it finely, and add it to a medium mixing bowl. Add milk, cheese, black pepper, and garlic to the mixing bowl. Remove cooked baked potatoes from the oven and slice potatoes in half horizontally. Scoop out the flesh of the potato, leaving approximately 1/2 inch of flesh remaining in the skins, and place the potato flesh in the mixing bowl with the broccoli mixture. With an electric mixer, whip the potato–broccoli mixture for 3 minutes. Fill each potato half with mixture and return to the oven for an additional 15 minutes.

Kitchen Hint of the Day

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Choosing the best Broccoli………….

 

Choose broccoli heads with tight, green florets and firm stalks. The broccoli should feel heavy for its size. The cut ends of the stalks should be fresh and moist looking. Avoid broccoli with dried out or browning stem ends or yellowing florets.

 

Then to store that great looking Broccoli forgo the plastic bag and loosely wrap your broccoli in a damp paper towel before storing it in the refrigerator. This provides a healthy and moist (but breathable) environment for your broccoli. Make sure not to wash the broccoli beforehand, as too much moisture might encourage mold growth.

Buying, and Storing Broccoli……………….

The broccoli should feel heavy for its size. The cut ends of the stalks should be fresh and moist looking. Avoid broccoli with dried out or browning stem ends or yellowing florets. To maximize the shelf life of raw broccoli, refrigerate in a plastic bag; do not wash until ready to use. Properly stored, broccoli will usually keep well for about 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator.
