I just made this and it taste awesome. I added garlic as someone else suggested. It's marinating now in the refrigerator. Thanks for the recipe.

Oh my god, this is amazing! I really don't like plain raw broccoli, but with this recipe I won't have a problem diggin' in on it.

I used agave instead of dates, used braggs instead of nama shoyu, skipped the sesame oil, and didn't really follow the measurements - just aprox.. but it tourned out really amazing. Actually eating it right now, for lunch at work ;-)

You don't need to dehydrate. I marinated for about 90 minutes in the sauce and it tasted amazing, crisp tender. I'm new here so Hello everyone!

Oh my god!!! This is soooo freaking yummy. I subbed raisins for the dates and only used two tablespoons of olive oil. I also left out the sesame cuz I don´t have them and added garlic. it´s soo good as it is but i´ve got mine in the dehydrator right now. I really don´t want to share with my husband tonight!

I'm brand new to this site and I've made this recipe twice already. Yummy-Yum! The uncommon blend of flavors makes this intricately delicious. I greedily eat this up. That's no exaggeration.

Many, many thanks, 'wanna_B_raw', for sharing this. This is officially one of my staple dishes (along with kale salad and avocado pudding).

I want to share a couple things in return for those in a similar situation as me. First thing is that I don't like raw broccoli. (I hear ya, zhanna8!) I'll eat it for the nutritiousness, but there's always a hint of gagging when it goes down.

I wanted to thoroughly enjoy this recipe, so I used broccoli-rabe (aka rapini) instead. I can handle this broccoli-ish cruciferous raw. It's got the little broccoli-like heads, plus it has lots of leaves. The super-greenness of it is more appealing to me, too.

Just an idea for those trying to find ways to deal with broccoli. (Broccolini is another alternative that I plan on trying.)

The other thing I want to share is that this can be made without a blender. That's how I've made this recipe. I took a big bowl of chopped rapini and just threw all the other ingredients on top of it and mixed. What about the dates? I chopped them up about raisin-size before scattering them over the greens. They were little treats of sweetness in the salad.

This recipe is greatly appreciated.

I am always looking for broccoli recipes. This sounds very flavorful! I bet if I actually marinate the broccoli in the "sauce" for a few hours it will soften.

I think I'll try this tonight.

If you toss the broccoli with a mix of fresh orange juice, olive oil and a dash of braggs or nama shoyu to moisten it and then dehydrate it for an hour or so, it comes out delicious and just like it's lightly steamed. I prepare it this way 2-3 times a week, usually with a cheesy dip made of cashews and nut. yeast and red peppers

I LOVE broccoli! Even my girls will eat it raw. I am going to have to try this tonight and find out how it goes. Zhanna8, I found that raw broccoli usually just needs a good washing and drying. Though for this I am going to try to soften it a bit in the dehydrator like JoyceH suggested. Thanks for the recipe!

i was always wondering about raw broccoli... what is your take on it? does it need any kind of prep? i love all other crucifierous vegetavles such as cabbage,arugula, cauliflower, collards, bok choy, kale, mustard greens, radishes, watercress, rutabaga, and brussels sprouts... though broccoli seams make me on guard.

That looks great. I bet you could even soften up the broccoli a bit in the dehydrator. I'll try this soon!
