|A breakfast rich in folate, vitamin K, and sulfur compounds|
So, an experiment. I threw the extra-tender (read: a little overcooked) broccoli into a bowl and mash-chopped it up with a fork. I melted a luscious square of butter on top, then stirred in some Parmesan cheese (the kind in the jar, which my family affectionately calls "shake cheese"). Viola! Parmesan Broccoli Minute-Hash was born!
Darwin instantly fell for the rich, salty, easily scoopable hash. He ate a truly gratifying amount of broccoli, and now often asks for his morning broccoli prepared this way. May yours ask for broccoli, too!
Parmesan Broccoli Minute-Hash
Serves as many as you like
Fresh broccoli, chopped into evenly-sized florets
In a covered, medium pot outfitted with a steam basket and filled with an inch of water, steam the broccoli florets until quite tender and beginning to lose their crisp brightness.
Transfer florets to a mixing bowl, add butter to taste, and mash, coarsely or finely, with a fork.
Add a generous shake of Parmesan cheese, stir thoroughly, and serve.
