I have no fruits or vegetables at home after returning from Africa, and can’t get to the grocery store until this weekend. Therefore, last night’s dinner ended up being the one vegetable I had left in the house (in the freezer), steamed: Broccoli. I had a frozen bag of broccoli on reserve just in case, and it finally got used! Much to my surprise, I inhaled the entire bag, and this will be a new quick side dish I add to our meal rotations, it was that tasty.
Garlic Buttered Broccoli
- 1 bag frozen broccoli (or 1 head fresh!)
- 3 TBSP raw butter or ghee
- Garlic powder
- Kosher salt/pepp
I dumped the frozen bag of broccoli into my vegetable steamer, and steamed for 10 minutes (to prevent mushi-ness). In the meantime, I melted roughly 3 tablespoons of raw butter. Once the broccoli was steamed, I dumped the butter on it, sprinkled generously with organic garlic powder, black pepper, and light kosher salt, and tossed. Amazing.
Broccoli is one of my least favorite veggies (and I don’t veggie discriminate, at all), as historically it’s always upset my stomach, but I’m trying to gradually work it back in for the health benefits. This dish, helps 🙂
