The team at Tenderstem® have asked us to find out what Mumsnetters think of their latest collection of family-friendly, time-saving recipes.

In case you don't know it (yet) Tenderstem® is a long-stemmed broccoli – and tender from floret to stem so the whole vegetable can be eaten.

Here's what the team at Tenderstem® have to say, "Tenderstem® is a wonder vegetable for family cooking as, not only is it ready to eat after just 3 minutes of steaming, it is packed full of nutrients and leaves no costly waste behind making it one of the most versatile vegetables around."

They go on to say, "we know from first-hand experience how challenging it can be to keep the whole family happy and healthy when we're all so busy, which is what has inspired us to create our latest collection of recipes. With prepare-ahead dishes, to those mild in flavour, and adaptable to please a range of tastes and all quick and simple to prepare, Tenderstem® has it covered!"

They also have teamed up with family food expert and author Fiona Faulkner to give you these top ten tips to save time and money in the kitchen.

Please have a look through Tenderstem®'s specially designed Facebook album for Mumsnetters here, you could even 'like' your favourite recipe grin. Then come back to this thread and let us know what you think.

They'd also love to know whether you already cook with Tenderstem®, or whether it has yet to make it into your fridge. If you have cooked with it before, tell us what you loved about it! Feel free to share any other recipes from your repertoire which use Tenderstem®. Or any tips you have on how to prepare it/ use it in established recipes.

Everyone who joins in with the discussion on this thread will be entered into a prize draw to win a £250 voucher for House of Fraser.

Thanks and good luck,

The pictures look super yummy. Considering it is a vegetable an they are showcasing it I was surprised there weren't more showstopper recipes featuresing it.

I love the look of the Indonesian chicken; the colours look fantastic. I think the recipes provide lots of different ideas. We love Tenderstem and also like the fact that it is a superfood but tend to eat it generally as a vegetable on its own or in a quiche.

All 5 of us in our household love tenderstem and purple sprouting broccoli. We either have it steamed so its still al dente or enjoy it in a stir fry. The stems are sooo sweet the kids love them :-)

I like the look of the pie and I'd never thought to have broccoli on pizza before!

Never heard of Tenderstem but will look out for it, sounds tasty.
