I need a broccoli side dish

I have been requested to bring a broccoli side dish for thanksgiving and I'm looking for ideas besides just steamed or with cheese sauce. Any ideas?

  1. I made this one year and it has now remained a staple on our Thanksgiving table. Being Canadian, we just had Thanksgiving and I just made it again this year - absolutely delicious. It really is a great balance from the overly rich, cheesey, creamy other dishes on the table.

      That sounds good! We would substitute maple syrup for the honey.

    2. Roasted, alone, or with cauliflower

      1. cheesecake beat me it - roasting uis my favorite way to prepare broccoli (and cauliflower). even those who claim to hate broccoli have been known to enjoy it roasted. i was going to suggest serving with an anchovy-lemon sauce and fried capers...but that Saveur recipe provided by Restaurant Dish also sounds excellent!

          Last time I served it roasted to guests, I included several 'dipping' sauces instead of tossing all the broccoli with a lemon vinaigrette. Everyone liked the options.

        2. How about a broccoli soup?


            i made this last xmas and it was absolutely delicious. i used cashew butter instead because that's what i had in my fridge.
