Kids Broccoli recipe

Not sure what to really call this recipe because I make it a little different each time.  It is super healthy and yummy!  There is never any leftover in our house which is amazing because we have a 4 year old and a 2 year old.  Enjoy.

Broccoli Dish

4 heads of organic/local broccoli
1 cup water
1/4 cup  homemade chicken broth
1/4 cup raw/organic butter
1 cup raw cheddar cheese
1/4 cup raw milk/cream
Garlic powder
sea salt

My biggest rule when it comes to cooking...improvise.  When you don't have all the ingredients- leave a few things out or change it up a little.  This may work easily for cooking, but not always baking! 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.  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.  But it is Very Yummy!  This dish is great with steamed rice and grilled steak.  All the flavors mixed together are fantastic!  Enjoy.
