This broccoli was very good with a few modifications. Because a few people mentioned it was kind of bland, I added extra paprika, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Also, I tossed the broccoli with the rest of the ingredients and then roasted it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes. Even my kids liked it!!

It tasted great. Timing is important here. Make sure you are cooking this right before you are ready to eat. It cools down fairly fast.

I cooked the broccoli in the microwave as I do 95% of all my vegetables, fresh or frozen. We liked it but would definitely increase the paprika or maybe switch to my stronger Hungarian variety. I also added a little extra cheese.
