Broccoli With Garlic-Herb Butter

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Nimz1466

This is a recipe from my 2008 Weight Watchers cookbook that we really enjoyed. I altered it slightly for our taste. It's a nice way to enjoy broccoli without all the cheese sauce. It's got a nice bite to it too. Feel free to leave out the crushed red pepper flakes. The frozen steam bags of broccoli work well with this recipe.

This is a really great variation on broccoli. I really loved the garlic flavor! Also, the hint of spiciness was really nice. Thank you for posting! :)
