Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables. I almost always roast it, and it’s delicious, but after awhile, even your favorite side dish can get boring.

Luckily, broccoli wears many hats, but it wears velvety garlic infused cream very well.

This recipe is super easy, super decadent (for a vegetable!) and makes a great keto-friendly side dish. You could add any number of things to this to make it better — bacon or cheese would be a good start — but the garlic, cream, and Ava Jane’s Kitchen Citrus Salt and Pepper seasoning is arguably enough. The peppery seasoning blend does a great job of cutting the richness of the cream. This super fast side dish would be perfect with your favorite roasted or even grilled meats. I’m also thinking that you could add another vegetable in there as well. Brussels sprouts?

Next time. Definitely next time.
