Fresh broccoli is crispy and tasty, but what happens when you have so much fresh broccoli you can’t eat it all? That was our predicament with 18 full size heads being ready to harvest at the same time. But don’t fear, your broccoli won’t go to waste, you can freeze it! And I promise you it still tastes fresh and delicious. In fact I froze some earlier this week and used it for broccoli soup last night and it was hands down the best broccoli soup I’ve ever made! Besides soups you can use it for stir-fry, pasta dishes or just as a fresh side dish.
So let’s go, let’s freeze some broccoli. Soon your freezer will look like mine… where you have to play Tetris every time you want to add something!

After the 3 minutes is up put a slotted spoon into the boiling water and get your broccoli out, immediately drop the broccoli into a ice bath. Tip here – use one whole ice tray per pot you are boiling. So if you are are going to freeze alot of broccoli, have plenty of ice trays filled.
