"I was concerned about the few ingredients, and also the chili powder; I thought no way will this taste good. But the chili powder doesn't taste like chili powder...just makes the broccoli juicy and flavorful. Really surprising with a clean taste, for those times you don't want sauce or cheese-laden broccoli."
