Method

To make the maple nut butter:

  2. Add to a food processor with olive oil, maple syrup, hot water and soy sauce and blitz until smooth

To make the salad:

  1. Cut the broccoli into small florets and steam until tender

Green vegetables are packed full of vitamins, but they can sometimes be a little boring. This maple nut butter – made with toasted peanuts – is a great way to add flavour to this dish and provide some extra protein which will help with muscle repair after exercise.

More about Maple

The colour and flavour of maple syrup changes in subtle ways during the seasonal harvest.

At the start of the sugaring season, the syrup is generally clear, with a light, sweet taste. It becomes darker with a caramelised flavour as the season progresses throughout the spring.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter doesn't contain any butter, or dairy products.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree – that’s all.
