A delicious sauce that can be served directly on top of the cooked broccoli or cauliflower, or chilled and used as a vegetable dip. The only way my kids will eat broccoli or cauliflower!

Directions

  1. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in onion, and cook until the onion has begun to turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, place broccoli in a steamer over 1 inch of boiling water, and cover. Cook until tender but still firm, about 6 minutes. Drain.
  2. When the onions have turned golden brown, remove the saucepan from the heat, and whisk in the sour cream, vinegar, sugar, poppy seeds, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper. Place the cooked broccoli into a serving dish, and pour the sauce overtop. Sprinkle with chopped pecans to serve.

We didn't really like this recipe as is.I really liked the idea of poppy seeds with broccoli, which was why I picked it. However, I couldn't really taste the poppy seeds and bf wnated to know if I had used thousand island in the sauce somehow. I hadn't, but once he'd said that it did make sense. The sauce also made the broccoli cold, which I didn't like. I really like the idea, but I don't like the sour cream added to it, so I might try it again without the sour cream, butter and onions to see if it would work more like a dressing. Thanks, though, for the recipe and the idea.

I printed this recipe two and a half years ago before any reviews were written, and I wish I had checked the reviews as I usually do before making something for the first time. The ingredient list sounds good, but the end result was not what I was expecting. This makes a cold, thick sour cream mixture that goes over steamed broccoli. I was expecting a warm, SAUCE (not thick sour cream). I would not recommend this recipe.

It was okay, not the best. There was too much sour cream and paprika. If I try this again, I won't use so much.
