My almost-4-year old daughter just started eating broccoli! I hadn’t made it in forever, and when I did I used to just steam it and serve it plain – and let everyone salt and butter to their liking. Never went over well with her. However, since she has always loved breadsticks with garlic and parmesan seasoning (and my husband and I do too!), I decided to choose our broccoli like this: saute fresh or frozen (thawed) broccoli in butter, add a smidge of crushed garlic paste (Trader Joe’s brand) at the end of cooking, toss to coat, and then let her sprinkle her own parmesan on top. It is so yummy that she, my husband, and I can finish a pound of broccoli in one sitting. She was sad one night that we had company over for dinner and there wasn’t enough for her to have seconds?! This is a delicious way to prepare and eat green beans too!
