Broccoli might just be one of the most versatile veggies around. Hear us out: the green, tree-like florets and thick stalks can be roasted, steamed, blended into creamy soups, or even served raw! (Try it as part of your next crudité plate with an herby dip and you won't be disappointed.)
Of course, broccoli is a delicious vegetable side dish for chicken, steak, or fish but it can also stand on its own in a broccoli casserole or your favorite pasta recipe. And just because it's green doesn't mean your family won't eat it! Ree Drummond recalls the days when her kids were younger and broccoli was on the weeknight dinner menu: "My boy Bryce loves broccoli with cheese sauce so much that there’ve been times I’ve actually feared he would turn into broccoli with cheese sauce!" she jokes.
