Broccoli is an ingredient that mostly gets stuck on a veggie try with ranch dressing. This is one of my favorite ways to cook broccoli. You can adjust the seasoning to make it spicy or leave the red pepper flakes. I honestly could just eat this as a snack it was so addicting! Broccoli has so many health benefits and yes I can smell like farts while it cooks (as my son likes to giggle about) but, it is linked to lots of good things for your body like high in fiber, heart protection, fights inflammation, keeps bones strong and it’s a natural detox among a lot of of things. So make sure you add broccoli into your rotation of meals!
