Broccoli with Garlic-Herb Butter

Buy a package of broccoli florets so you don't have to spend time chopping broccoli. A 12-ounce package contains about 4 1/2 cups of florets. You can have any leftover raw broccoli with a little light ranch dressing for a snack on another day.


4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
