Sugar Dusted Broccoli

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Rebam98

Broccoli doesn't need doused in cheese or sauce to taste yummy: just a dust of sugar! I 'invented' this recipe after making a pork dish with the same flavors. I wanted the flavors to carry through the whole meal. I encourage you to alter seasonings to your liking! I eat this broccoli straight out of the pan.

Wonderful! I just made this...and it tastes soooo good and I do not really care for broccoli. I did not use garlic (personal preference) and also tossed in some( not a lot) red pepper flakes. Deeelish! Thank you for such a tasty and easy way to fix such a mundane veggie! Cheers!!!
