    A fantastic way to eat broccoli! I knew I had to add a little extra pow for us to love this so I did. I minced my garlic, added one chopped jalapeno (next time I will add two) and chopped onion. We loved this recipe but I'm only giving 4 stars because this method didn't work for me as written. I had problems getting the broccoli to puree since there was no thin liquid listed to be added. Adding olive did not help either. Finally, I decided to add a chicken broth and that did the trick. I added salt and it needed more salt. I think 1 tsp. may do the trick next time. I used microwave to steam broccoli, it always comes out perfect. Can't wait to make this again now that I know how to move it along. I highly recommend trying this!!!
