Reviews for Microwaved Seasoned Broccoli Spears
"I did this with fresh broccoli and doubled the time. The flavors were great; however I probably should have added a Tbsp. of water since I used fresh broccoli."
"It was fine, but I thought it needed more flavor."
"Not sure why this recipe is called spears when it's all florets...but the name error didn't stop me from making it! Very delicious indeed! I used a 12 oz bag of fresh florets (which has 6 cups in it), regular salt (because I didn't have onion salt home), and Italian seasoning (since I didn't have plain thyme home). Oh soooo good!~ Theresa"
"way easy...and so good. the added flavors will make you want seconds...on broccoli! imagine that."
"To cut back on fat, I used Butter Buds"
"This was really yummy! I used a combination of fresh broccoli and fresh cauliflower instead of frozen broccoli. My husband, who doesn't even like cauliflower went back for more! I will definately make this again and again and again."
