Flavorful Way to Eat Your Broccoli

By Kelli Swensen, Dietetics Student, Sargent College

“Eat your broccoli”
I’m sure many of you heard this command sometime during your childhood. As a kid, broccoli was never associated with something good; rather, it was the fee you had to pay in order to get a cookie after dinner. While some people grow to like the addition of broccoli in their meals, many continue to avoid it due to its bitter taste. Well we here at the Sargent Choice Nutrition Center have good news for you: broccoli can taste good, really good.

One of  Laura Judd’s previous students, Katy Whistler, emailed Laura about a broccoli recipe that even the strongest broccoli avoiders will like. Found on the Amateur Gourmet blog, Katy describes “The Best Broccoli of Your Life” recipe as being “amazing enough to email an old professor, amazing.” A self-proclaimed “broccoli abstainer and general vegetable avoider,” Katy even mentions that she didn’t need to re-olive oil or add parmesan cheese as the recipe instructs. She found that just the addition of lemon juice and roasting the broccoli were enough to make the dish a winner.

Broccoli is probably one of my favorite vegetables. Usually when I’m hungry in the weird afternoon hours of 3 or 4 after my classes, i make a quick little and healthy veggie snack- steamed broccoli with soy sauce and lime.
I usually put a handful of frozen broccoli in a bowl . I use the frozen stuff since it’s pretty cheap (about a dollar a bag from Shaws) and it can be stored in my dormroom microfridge for a while. Then I wet a paper towel, squeeze out the excess water and place it over the bowl. Then I put the bowl in the microwave and set the timer for 3-4 minutes. This is kinda my makeshift way of steaming brocolli… Once it’s hot and steamed, I add about a tsp of low sodium soy sauce and a spritz of lime. The product is a tangy and tasty broccolli snack! 😀
