This is my favorite way to eat broccoli, and so easy! Love the nutritional yeast touch.
So glad you enjoy this one! We really like the nutritional yeast, too!
I’m planning on making this tonight! Do the broccoli florets need to be in a single layer, or can they be on top of eachother?
It works best if they are in a single layer, but if you have to put them on top of one another be sure to mix halfway and you might need to add a couple of minutes to the cook time.
