Do you drool over broccoli like I do?
If you answered yes, you and I going to get along just great!
Broccoli and cheese has always been my favorite combination. I made this broccoli cheese casserole that is so good! I make it about 2-3 times a month!
For most people, broccoli is not appetizing at all. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard “yuk” or “get it away from my face!” when I put broccoli in front of them.
Why does this superfood get so much negative reaction is beyond my understanding!
One of the main things I hear is that it takes too much time to cook it and most people don’t have the time for it. So, I decided to find a speedy way of cooking it.
Steaming broccoli in the pressure cooker took less than 10 minutes to make. I got broccoli crowns from my local grocer and then put them in a pressure cooker safe plate. After adding garlic and Himalyan pink salt, I closed it and went with the “Nutritional Cooking” option.
In about 5 minutes, the broccoli was ready and I dug in with my fork. I had eaten up half of it before I realized that I hadn’t photographed it!
So, off I went to the grocery store again and got more broccoli for round 2!
Once pressure cooker steamed broccoli was done, I added a little soy sauce, sesame seeds and sriracha sauce. I put that on basmati rice and devoured it in less than 10 minutes!
It was that good!
If you want, you can put it in meal prep bowls and save it for lunch during the week. Add things like carrots and bell peppers with the broccoli for additional nutrition.
So, that’s how easy it is to make pressure cooker steamed broccoli! Easiest thing ever, right?
