Just this week my brother told me that he wanted to start eating more broccoli, and asked if I had any broccoli recipes I could share with him. Talk about perfect timing! Broccoli is another versatile green vegetable that’s great to include in pasta salads, casserole dishes, soups, or just roasted and served as an easy side dish. It’s sturdy so it holds up well in the fridge for meal prepping, and frozen broccoli is usually less expensive than fresh broccoli, in case you want to stash a few bags in the freezer. So if you’re looking for some new ways to enjoy broccoli, here are 18 of our favorite broccoli recipes for you to try out ;)
