Broccoli Dijon Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Broccoli Dijon which belongs to the Sides recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) frozen broccoli cuts or spears
  2. cup (60 ml) vinaigrette dressing (I use Paul Newman's Olive Oil and
  3. Vinegar.)
  4. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) Dijon mustard
  5. 3 scallions, sliced thin

Cooking Instructions

I like to use broccoli cuts for this, but use spears or florets if that's what you have on hand; it'll be fine.

If your broccoli is frozen in a clump, throw the bag on the floor, hard, a few times to break it up, or if it's a box, slam all sides of it against the counter.

This will make sure it's separated and cooks evenly.

Put your smashed-apart broccoli, still frozen, in a microwaveable casserole dish with a lid.

Add a couple of tablespoons (30 ml) of water, cover, and cook on high for 7 minutes.

It should be tender-crisp by then, but if there are still cold spots, stir it and give it another minute or two.

Don't overcook! While the broccoli is cooking, measure the dressing and the mustard into a bowl and whisk together.

Okay, the broccoli's done! Drain it and then pour the dressing over it and toss.

Add the scallions, toss again, and serve immediately.
