Gribiche Inspired Broccoli Dish

/ Leave a Comment
Sauce gribiche is a mayonnaise-style cold egg sauce mainly used in French dishes...fancy I know! It is easily made by mushing hard-boiled egg yolks and mustard with a canola or grapeseed oil. The sauce is finished with chopped onions, capers, parsley, and tarragon. It also includes hard-boiled egg whites chopped up in the dish.

Knowing I only had bits and pieces of the ingredients listed I above I decided to make my own inspired gribiche dish. This recipe works great at any time of the day and as a side or main dish. 


  • 1 1/2 cup fresh broccoli; cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 hard boiled eggs; diced into cubes or you can later cut it with your utensil.
  • 1/2 cup of chives
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 strips bacon; chopped (use kidney beans if you are vegetarian)
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro
  • 2 tbsp red onion; chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet till hot. 
  • Throw in bacon first and let it cook for a couple minutes. Then put in onion and broccoli. Cook until bacon browns and broccoli is tender but still firm...I cooked everything together for about 5 minutes. 
  • While bacon, onions, and broccoli cook, chop up chives and cilantro and put into mixing bowl. After everything is done cooking mix fresh and warm ingredients with 1/2 tsp dijon mustard.
  • Serve with fork or spoon. 
Bon appetit!
