Broccoli seems to be one of those polarizing foods you either love it or hate it! No matter your feelings on the subject, broccoli is packed with nutrients and is also a great go-to vegetable for all kinds of dishes. When prepared right, even the pickiest of broccoli eaters can learn to love this ever-faithful veggie. My 9-year-old daughter is a perfect example. She claims to not like broccoli, but when I cook it in especially delicious ways, she always eats it up!
To prove that broccoli can be amazing, I decided to seek out the most delectable-looking broccoli recipes out there. These 20 irresistible broccoli recipes will have everyone in your family eating all of the broccoli on their plate I guarantee it! (Legal disclaimer: If anyone in your family is as picky as my 2-year-old when it comes to vegetables, then that guarantee is null and void. But if they’re just kind of picky like my 9-year-old, then the guarantee is good to go!)
