    This was fabulous! I needed a broccoli recipe to go with a Pan Seared Moroccan Salmon (Recipe #158351). So, I searched broccoli and cumin and this was the only recipe that came up. I loved how the flavors of the cumin and red onion came together. This meal was exceptional!

    What a great way to dress up broccoli! I used flowerets instead of spears because we buy pre-cut broccoli in large bags from Costco (we eat a lot of it!) Flavors were all subtle, so nothing overpowered the broccoli. Thanks for another winner, Susie!

    Terrific broccoli dish; the sauteed onions are especially tasty! I used ground cumin and a salt replacer, and omitted the butter. I think next time I'll undercook the broccoli and then stirfry it a bit with the onions, but it's easy and I'd say definetly worth making again!
