    This was a super quick and easy way to jazz up plain old steamed broccoli. Next time I'll leave out the olive oil as I think it would still be delicious without it!

    I've made this numerous times over the past 5 years and it always turns out excellent. Nice flavor and easy to increase for more than 2.
