Hi
I cooked (steamed) frozen broccoli, forgot about it and left it out. How long can it be left out of the fridge before it needs to be tossed?

    3.6 hours.

      Two hours, according to my favorite authority on such matters: www.stilltasty.com/

      That's their recommendation for fresh cooked broccoli, but I don't see any reason why it would be different for frozen once it's been cooked.

        That seems like a pretty short time...
