Healthy and Delicious Broccoli Side Dish

Source

Family-Friendly Broccoli Recipe

This broccoli comes together pretty quickly and uses ingredients you probably already have at home. That's why I like this recipe as a quick weekday side dish. The kids like it for its sweet flavor, and I'm thrilled because they eat their vegetables with no fuss—and they usually ask for seconds!

You can tweak this recipe to your own preference as far as sweeteners are concerned—agave, coconut sugar, and maple syrup all work great as substitutes for brown sugar.

Broccoli is high in many nutrients, including fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, and potassium. It also contains more protein than most other vegetables. Having this as a weekly staple in our house is awesome since our kids love it AND it's good for them!

      I eat raw broccoli in salads, plus I steam broccoli for dinners at least once a week as it is a favorite at my house. This recipe is uniquely different and sounds delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
