This broccoli was very good with a few modifications. Because a few people mentioned it was kind of bland I added extra paprika salt pepper and Parmesan cheese. Also I tossed the broccoli with the rest of the ingredients and then roasted it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Even my kids liked it!!
I cooked the broccoli in the microwave as I do 95% of all my vegetables fresh or frozen. We liked it but would definitely increase the paprika or maybe switch to my stronger Hungarian variety. I also added a little extra cheese.
The kids loved the Parmesan cheese flavored broccoli! I cut the amount of butter to 1 T. The cheese paprika and poppy seeds all adhered to the broccoli with no problem. I omitted the salt and pepper. We will definitely be serving this again!
This was so easy and uber yummy! It's a quick way to add a vegetable to the meal and who doesn't love something with butter and cheese! 6 minutes of steaming was perfect on my gas stove. The broccoli was al dente and not soggy. This will be a staple in my household.
