    In Broccoli Cheddar Soup. Nom, nom nom.

    Yeah, this is a good answer.

    I pretty much have to force myself to eat vegetables...the red wine vinegarette sounds like a winner! Thanks!

    I love red wine vinaigrette (really all vinaigrettes, and red wine vinegar and a good mustard makes a good dressing too). I'm not anti sweetener, but I wouldn't add it, personally -- I dislike overly sweet salad dressings and find that vinegars usually are sweet enough.

    Walmart has seasoned broccoli that's delicious! It's in with frozen stuff

    Well, if you don't like it, you don't have to eat it. There's plenty of foods out there that you can eat and get the same or even better nutritional value as broccoli.

    But if you wanna try to spruce it up to make it taste better, I say saute them with olive oil, add a little pepper. If you wanna season them up, try a salt-free seasoning, that way you won't feel as guilty with the sodium intake. :)

    Def roasted. Then tossed with some lemon juice and red pepper hummus. YUM.

    I'm not a fan of it Too however I'm forcing myself to like it. I can't be leaving that much rich nutrition on the table like that. It's tasting better tbh. I season it. That'll improve the taste.

    Roasted! Or...
    Steam long enough to just get tender. Cool rapidly. Chop into 1/4 to 1/2 inch chunks. Put in a bowl with a handful of coarsely chopped pecans, and a handful of Craisins. Toss with a vinaigrette--especially a fruity one like raspberry or pomegranate.
    Not sure where you stand on mayo, but if you stir some yellow mustard into mayo, it makes a mighty fine sauce for broccoli.
    You can also dip it in hummus or pretty much any creamy dressing.

    I love roasted garlic veggies with S/P and butter.

    Any type- broccoli is especially good that way- but if you don't like it- don't eat it.

    I know broccoli is super duper healthy but I really don't like it. What can I put on it to make it taste halfway decent? I'm good with spicy food but Tabasco on broccoli doesn't cut it!

    If you don't like it, why eat it? There are many other healthy foods.

    But since you asked, cheese is the answer.

    The only thing I don't like about Broccoli is the gas that comes with it :/

    I personally love broccoli. Salt pepper and light soy sauce

    I LOVE broccoli. I love it raw, all alone. I love it shaved, mixed in with salad greens. I love it in broccoli rice casserole. I love it roasted. I love it steamed. I could eat it 3 times a day. I LOVE broccoli.
    I HATE spinach. I don’t eat spinach.

    One of my favorite ways to use broccoli is to sautee in butter and then crack a couple of eggs over it.

    I also like to toss it into the pasta water for the last couple of minutes the pasta is cooking then drain all and toss in your favorite sauce.

    Steam and drizzle with garlic oil.

    Raw in salads. This is best with summer broccoli.

    OMG, broccoli is my favorite!!! I eat multiple servings most days. I love it any way I can get it, but it's best blanched and cooled and then used instead of salad greens!

    I flippin' LOVE broccoli salad, but I can never, ever get it right on my own. I always stuff up the blanching. It's something I'm doomed to only enjoy when someone else makes it.

    When I blanch broccoli or asparagus, once it reaches the correct tenderness, I place it directly into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process. It comes out great each time and perfect for broccoli salads, or marinating cold asparagus in Italian dressing overnight.

    Yes, the ice bath is key! :D

    I like broccoli.

    but if you dont, you dont.

    everyone isnt required to like everything.

    Sure, try different recipes etc if you want to - but in the end, if you still dont like it - just dont eat it

    There's nothing magical about broccoli that you cant get from other foods
