Broccoli is such a healthy, versatile, and tasty ingredient to add into your meal. It’s got a fun texture and pretty neutral taste, so it’s all about the seasoning and other ingredients. It works well in almost any savory dish, so it’s great to buy a lot of and just throw into whatever you’re making. Broccoli is also perfect for people who don’t love vegetables (yet.) It’s one of the less intense green vegetables, but if you have an especially picky eater on your hands, try putting it in Mac n’ cheese or a stir fry! You can also try out these 15 vegan broccoli recipes —they’re fantastic!
