The broccoli keeps growing and growing. It's a darn hardy vegetable plant that gives and gives. Once you take the first crown, then the darling plant proceeds to take on many different baby crowns, that are tender, and perfection plus! I really like that a simple, yet, flourishing plant can bring that much enjoyment to our day. I particularly like this recipe, as it can be a whole dinner for us some evenings. Although Dennis does require "meat" at most meals, he could just as happily toddle off with a large scoop of this casserole and a fork, and he proclaims he is in heaven. Just a simple, farming, boastful dish of warmness and total soul comforting veggies. I agree, this is not a skinny dish, but you can make it that way just by changing the fat to low fat and increase the spices. Come'on -- try it, I promise it won't hurt a bit.
