Well Hello! How’s it going, friends? Happy Wednesday!

Guess what?! We are snowed-in and freezing! Not surprising since this is Indiana, the other Alaskan state…
In recent years, our winters are just crazy-cold. At this moment, when you factor in the wind chill, it is about -30 degrees Fahrenheit. Brrrr!!

Also? I’d like to take a minute and wish my dear fellow Orthodox Christians a very Merry Christmas!! Christ is Born!
I realize that for the rest of you he’s already two weeks old and crawling, but I’m the one who’s going to play stuff-my-face at Mom’s house with Chocolate Baklava today and not YOU! Na na na na na na. 😉

Along with the Baklava, I’m also bringing this side of Garlicky Steamed Broccoli to balance it all out. Fingers crossed, I will not freeze solid while trying to reach Mama’s house.

I am always surprised at myself and the constant cravings I have for green veggies. Brussels sprouts and broccoli are forever at the top of my list.

I come up with a million ways to ensure I get a proper greens-fix. Most of the time that means healthy vegetables swimming in lotsa cheese, but not this time! In fact, I’ve been chillin’ with this recipe, or a variation of it, since that one time when I made Crumb Coated Broccoli for the French Fridays Club.

It was love at first bite and I never got tired of it.

Now, enough rambling. I need to get my snowsuit on and go to Church and YOU need to get to the recipe so that you can go to your kitchen and make this beautiful side dish for the Fam. It will take you all of 20 to 25 minutes TOPS.

By the way, we’re steaming broccoli without a steamer. YAY!!
I don’t even own a steamer…

So that’s broccoli meets garlic and crumbs with a hint of lemon. Dreamy.

ENJOY!

    thanks katerina

    This was good, except for the breadcrumbs – they’re pretty soggy, and I think I’ll try this recipe again, omitting them. Otherwise, I used about half as much butter and no almonds, but the taste was good!

    1. Anne

      Just chew fresh parsley. It takes away the lingering smell of garlic – just a stalk and leaves will do the trick!

  3. I adore broccoli with all of my heart. We’re guilty of just tossing a steamer bag in the microwave for quick eating. But I absolutely must make this version. It looks so bright and fresh. Way better than my limp steamer bag!

  4. Oooh. I didn’t know that Orthodox Christians have a different date for Christmas! My mind is kind of blown.

    And YES to lots of garlic on broccoli! I don’t like veggies so more garlic is always a good thing. 🙂

  5. I don’t think I’d ever hear ‘snowsuit” and “church” in one sentence but you pulled it off! Merry Christmas, my dear! We celebrated last night. 🙂 I’ve a got a whole Slavic feast of recipes on my blog today and if one cooks it all, stretchy pants will be needed. Enjoy snow! Gorgeous broccoli recipe!

    1. Merry Christmas, Julia!!! I’m at my Mom’s for Christmas lunch and I can’t even describe how good everything looks! You can imagine, I’m sure!! 😀 My yoga pants are sitting in my bag and I’m looking forward to slipping them on real soon! haha 🙂

    Merry Christmas! We have Divine Liturgy this morning and a luncheon later. There is also a custom here where I live to shoot guns on Main Street.

      1. Lisa

        I do too. The gun shooting thing must be a Serbian thing. I live in a rural area. This area was settled mostly by Serbs, Germans, and Italians.
