Hi Danielle, You could just try plain beef fillet as a substitute, it will work a treat! Best Johanna Sent from my iPhone
Hi sam, I am pretty sure arrowroot would work too but I havent tried it before. Yes plain flour should work also, it might make it cheesier but thats just a guess. Try it and let me know please! Jx Sent from my iPhone

Kit, the recipe for the veg works really well with tenderstm broccoli or broccoli florets too, just steam a little in advance, then stir fry as per instruction! Sugar snap beans and spinach also make a lovely alternative! Sent from my iPad

i MISS kohlrabi so much! in 11 years of living in london i only found it once, and 3 meagre pieces way past their prime sold for an outrageous 10 pounds (not to me, of course). nobody in england knows what to do with it, they had a feature on it in an english cookery magazin, where ALL recipes were using it boiled or cooking in some way or other. i still think julienned or grated with lemon juice and sour cream is one of the best ways of enjoying it.
trying out various ways of cooking broccoli on picky eaters (children), i can say that cooking method and time make a massive difference. overcook the broccoli and its flavour will be too intense, give it a mere 7 minutes for it still to be crunchy and it retains more of its nutritional qualities and WILL be eaten even by the fussiest. favourite way of doing broccoli is simply to roast it in the oven with a splash of olive oil, sliced garlic and sliced red chilli - however much you can take. i remember the obove dish from my childhood in austria, albeit with cauliflower (cheaper). also, the butter didn't get the benefit of browning, which would have made it more palatable to me ;-)
