I was feeling a wee bit sorry for myself. My husband had gotten the Boeuf Bourguignon (something I make very rarely) leftovers to take to work and here I was back at my desk after a nice long winter break with no lunch, yet! I rummaged around the fridge and found: 1 boiled potato I had (wisely) saved from the Boeuf Bourguignon dinner, celery, scallions, broccoli, very wilty cilantro and a little container of leftover aioli.
7 minutes later I had this! He can have all the Boeuf he wants.
Happy cooking (with what you have:)!
Serves 1, generously or 2 as a side
1 cold, boiled potato, diced
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced
1 scallion, thinly sliced (greens too)
3/4 up or so broccoli, cooked for about 4 minutes in lightly salted boiling water
2 Tablespoons chopped cilantro (stems are fine too)
1 tablespoon (or more) aioli (garlicky mayonnaise–just doctor store-bought mayo with minced garlic, lemon juice and salt if you don’t have homemade)
More lemon juice
Plenty of black pepper
Mix everything together. The warm/hot broccoli brings everything together nicely. Eat!
