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!

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.

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

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 ;-)

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.

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.
