Have you cooked frozen vegetables, and they come out watery, mushy, and bland? Fear not! I will share with you the best way I know to cook frozen broccoli. Frozen broccoli can taste delicious–I promise you that. And broccoli is full of health benefits which include anti-cancer properties.
Step 1: Thaw (in the microwave) about 3 cups frozen broccoli in a 9×9 baking dish. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Once defrosted, drain excess water and pat dry with a paper towel. (I know, I know some of the vitamins are leached into that water that I just told you to drain, but you will live). Place broccoli in the oven and cook for about 5-7 minutes until heated through. Meanwhile, Grate about 1/2 C- 1 C reduced fat mozzarella and reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese.
Step 3: Drain excess water/pat dry once again. Top broccoli with cheese mixture, salt/pepper to taste, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1 Tbsp Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning. Broil in oven for up to 5 minutes (keep an eye of the broccoli and remove when it looks slightly crispy).
Step 4: Eat your veggies!
