Steamed Broccoli and Cheese

Kids love this!  It is super healthy and yummy.

Ingredients: 

4 heads of organic/local broccoli

2 cups water

1/4 cup  homemade chicken broth

2 Tablespoons organic butter

1 cup raw cheddar cheese

1/4 cup raw milk/cream (optional)

Garlic powder (to taste)

sea salt

I love to improvise.  When I don’t have all the ingredients- I leave a few things out or change it up a little.  Sometimes I make this into a soup or rice casserole.  It is really good. Be creative.

Pour water in pan and begin to warm it up- around med/high heat.  Add salt and broccoli when water begins to boil.  Cover and steam for 5 minutes.  Turn down stove to medium heat.  Add butter and chicken broth and steam for another 5 minutes.  Turn down stove to low medium heat.  I strain out the leftover water – if there is any.  Add garlic powder and milk.  When the broccoli is tender turn the stove all the way off and grate your cheddar cheese all over the broccoli.  Always sample it first and then let it cool a little before giving it to the kiddos.  Sometimes you may need a little more butter or little less salt.  Each family has their own preferences.  This dish is great with steamed rice and grilled steak.  All the flavors mixed together are fantastic!  Enjoy.
