I’m going to tell you a little secret. I have never really liked broccoli that much. I know. It’s good for me. It’s green. It’s loaded with phyto nutrients and all that jazz. I used to get my boys to eat broccoli for lunch by telling them they were eating trees. All they knew is that trees are really big and that they would get big if they ate these tree-like broccoli florets. Seriously, they would gobble them down. I was so happy not to have to finish the leftovers on this one.
But, my taste buds have matured. First I tasted the very popular broccoli bacon salad at a picnic, and couldn’t believe I was actually eating broccoli! Then I ventured into pouring cheese sauce all over it….equally yummy. Then I did the unthinkable. I actually ordered it at a restaurant steamed, plain. And, I actually liked it. If I can overcome childish taste buds, so can you.
Today’s entry for our very vegetarian Christmas meal won’t take much coaxing tho. Just look at that piece a pie, would you? I can’t imagine that tasting bad, and I’m here to tell you that even the carnivores you host at your Very Vegetarian Christmas Meal won’t blink an eye at this dish without meat. It is really that good.
It is thoroughly vegetarian. It is also gluten free. And of course it’s not that hard to make and it’s delicioooo. You can find the complete directions on how to make this fantastic dish here.
