The week starts with another easy recipe using healthy broccoli. I recently started collecting Costco cookbooks, the one they give out the day after Thanksgiving. I was pleasantly surprised at the vegetarian recipes and how easy they are to adapt. The recipes are centered around the ingredients you find at Costco, but you can use similar ingredients with good results.
Garlic and broccoli is a winning combo. Adding breadcrumbs gives the dish a nice crunch and you cannot stop with one piece. We tossed this with pasta and loved the dish. Recipe adapted from Costco cookbook. Off to the recipe.
