Broccoli Saute

Jim MacNeal of Waterloo, New York invented this recipe while looking for a different way to cook broccoli that was lower in fat and sodium. Quick, colorful and tasty, it makes a quick and easy accompaniment to a variety of meals. TASTY TIP: Don’t want to throw out all those leftover broccoli stalks? Cut them up and add raw to salads or cook until tender, then puree and add to sour cream dip.
