Cook's Hideout: Buttery Garlicky Broccoli (Thanksgiving Side dish)

Buttery Garlicky Broccoli (Thanksgiving Side dish)

I have started making Thanksgiving side dishes to post here before the big day, so if any of you are looking for simple vegetarian side dishes then you can add these to your repertoire.
Buttery Garlicky Broccoli
This broccoli side dish is truly buttery and garlicky. It's very simple to make -- takes about 15~20 minutes at the most and is sure to be a hit at your Thanksgiving table. My 2 year old absolutely loved it and so it is kid-approved/ kid-friendly dish.

Recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.
Ingredients: Serves 4
Broccoli - 1 large head, cut into florets
Vegan Butter or trans fat-free margarine - 2tbsp (I used Earth Balance butter)
Garlic - 2 cloves, finely minced
Fresh Parsley - 2tbsp, chopped
Slivered Almonds - ¼cup, toasted (optional)
Red pepper flakes - ¼tsp (optional)
Salt & Pepper - to taste

  • Steam or microwave broccoli until crisp-tender. I microwaved for about 3 minutes. If steaming, then steam for about 4~5 minutes.
  • Melt butter in a large saute pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and salt and cook for 1 minute or until garlic is fragrant.
  • Stir in the parsley and 1tbsp water.
  • Add the steamed broccoli and toss to coat. Transfer to serving dish and sprinkle with the toasted almonds (if using) just before serving.
