This dish helps me warm up on a cold winter's day without being too heavy. It was inspired by a dish from my favorite vegetarian cookbook. I eat it with rice and chicken for dinner or a piece of brown bread for lunch.

  • Meanwhile, place a steamer insert into a saucepan, and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli, recover, and steam until bright green, 4 minutes. Remove the broccoli from the steamer and place in a 8x8 inch baking dish; set aside.

  • Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Pour the can of diced tomatoes and green olives into the skillet with the onion and carrot mixture. Stir and cook over medium-high heat until most of the sauce thickens, about 5 minutes. Mix in the maple syrup, season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook and stir for 3 minutes.

  • Pour the sauce over the broccoli in the 8x8 inch baking dish. Evenly distribute the goat cheese and Parmesan cheese over the broccoli and sauce.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the cheese begins to brown, about 20 minutes.

My husband and I are following a specific diet which include a lot of fresh vegetables. I found this recipe today and made it for dinner tonight and it is wonderful. I see myself making it again and again.

We did not like this recipe at all. It lacked flavor and the goat cheese and Parmesan just did not accentuate it. It was like someone messed up their dish so they threw cheese on top to fix it. Just our thoughts.

Delicious! I follwed the recipe fairly accurately but did not steam the brocooli. This made it fairly crunchy but that is the way my family likes it. The goat cheese really adds a wonderful flavor.

This was really tasty. I added a splash of balsalmic to the tomato mixture while heating and some sliced red bell pepper to the broccoli mixture. Also substituted a pinch of sugar for the maple syrup (maple syrup really did not sound good in this.) Everyone loved it. It's great as a light main course.

I love tomatoes and broccoli and my husband loves goat cheese so I really thought this was going to be a big hit. Neither one of us liked it. It was a little too sweet for me. I don't think the syrup was necessary. But it also had a strange bitterness

Easy to make and very tasty. Next time I will use fresh tomatoes as the canned ones left a vinegar taste that some did not like.

This has a great flavor! I didn't have olives or celery so did without but I think with everything else it is plenty. I also didn't have the syrup and replaced it with honey which I think works just as well without making it too sweet.

Amazingoved by all who tried it. I skipped the goat cheese and it was still good. Be careful when you cook it because it cools quickly. I will make it again.
