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.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic; cook and stir until aromatic, about 3 minutes. Stir in the carrots and celery, season with salt and pepper, and continue cooking until the vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.

  • 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.

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 Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
