Nutty Broccoli, with a Mustard Kick

Nutty Broccoli, with a Mustard Kick

Vibrant greens with a little punch and a sweet crunch. Nutty Broccoli is one of those sides that looks and tastes amazing with a simple meal or as part of a banquet table. I love to put this out for the family at Thanksgiving, Christmas or just on a weekday evening. I enjoy broccoli with some bite to it, so don't overdo the steaming/boiling of the florets at the start, plus the green color when its cooked just right really brightens up any dish.
