  1. Place the broccoli into a 3-quart saucepan and add water to cover. Cook over medium-high heat until the broccoli is tender-crisp. Drain the broccoli well in a colander. Return the broccoli to the saucepan.
  2. Add the concentrated broth to the saucepan and toss to coat.

Footnotes

  • You can substitute 4 cups of fresh broccoli florets for 1 pound green beans or fresh baby-cut carrots.
  • For something different, try 3 cups frozen whole kernel corn or peas or 1 package (16 ounces) your favorite frozen vegetable blend in this recipe.
  • To save time, use your microwave. Most stores now carry fresh and frozen vegetables in 12-ounce microwave-ready "steamer" bags. Just prepare according to package directions, drain and toss in a medium bowl with2 pouches Swanson(R) Concentrated Vegetable Broth!
  • For an Italian twist, stir in 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning, crushed and 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese.
  • To add some crunch, stir in 2 tablespoons toasted pine nuts or sliced almonds.
  • For a honey-balsamic glaze, stir in 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons honey. Cook and stir over low heat for 5 minutes or until the glaze is thickened.

I used one package of FROZEN california blend vegetables. This was okay. Seemed to be a bit on the salty side for us. Two of the flavor boost packets was too much for one package of vegetables. ...

Definitely quick, but heavy on the flavor... I used a steam in bag of broccoli and used only one flavor packet. While it's nice to enhance the flavor of vegetables you certainly don't want to ...

I steamed some petite baby carrots in the microwave for 6 minutes. I let them sit a few minutes, drained them, and then added the flavor booster. I am so glad I read the reviews first! I have fl...

I am SO glad that I read the reviews on this before following the recipe exactly...As written, it would've been waaaay to overpowering and salty, just as others have said. I only ended up using ...

I used broccoli, cauliflower, and a zucchini close to its expiration date to get 'em out of the fridge. I also roasted my veggies before adding the flavor boost. I have to agree with others - ...

This rating was given by my hubby because he's the one who ate the carrots I fixed. He would like me to prepare these again for him. I took one carrot and sliced it, lightly boiled it in a sma...

The recipe ingredients call for carrots or green beans, but the directions only mention broccoli. I assume ANY of these 3 vegetables would work (or other vegetables).

This was alright, but far from great. To me it was a little to salty for my taste. I think it would be better if maybe using less of the boost. Willing to give it another try.
