Good morning, friends!
I hope you had an excellent weekend. Ours was filled with lots of rain and football, a cloudy reminder that Summer is truly behind us.
Today i'm going to share something pretty life changing with you. When I say life changing, i'm not even being dramatic. This broccoli is to.die.for. I could eat an entire bag. If you are having trouble getting in your veggies, this recipe MUST be added to your arsenal. Best part is, it's completely done in under 4 minutes. A 4 minute side dish? Count. me. in.
You Will Need:
- Fresh Broccoli- I like the Green Giant Steam Packs
- 2 TBS organic butter
- 1 TBS Black Pepper
- 1/2 cup Feta Cheese
- (optional) 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- (optional) 1 tsp garlic powder
Start by steaming your broccoli to taste. The directions on this bag say 3 minutes, I take 30 seconds off of that and simply pierce the bag a few times, and microwave for 2 minutes 30 seconds.
Slice 2 tablespoons organic butter, and add to the bottom of a mixing bowl, along with your selected spices. This is great with black pepper only, however, sometimes I get a little craving for some kick and throw in some garlic powder and red pepper flakes.
When your broccoli is done steaming, toss it on top of your butter/spices and cover for 30 seconds- minute. This just melts the butter and helps the broccoli to absorb the spices.
Now comes the fun part- top with 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese...and DEVOUR!
SO easy, and literally the best broccoli I've ever tasted. The salty bite of the feta mixed with the richness of the butter makes this the most to-die-for veggie in the garden. And I don't get this passionate about vegetables often. :)
I hope you all have the most beautiful week! Here's hoping the weekend shows up soon :)
Until Next Time,
