"I really don't know if putting sunflower and spice will make non broccoli lovers eat this dish, but I'm a broccoli lover. My favorite way to eat broccoli is steamed so this was just ok. I probably won't make it exactly again, but I can see modifying it to fit my needs."

"I like adding another vegetable to broccoli, so I used 1 lb. broccoli florets & 3 zucchini, than I cut in half lengthwise and then into 1/2" slices, then I just followed the recipe, and it turned out wonderful. I toasted the sunflower kernels earlier, and added at the end."
