Trader Joe’s frozen vegetables are always a good value, and these broccoli florets are no exception. These also come in an organic broccoli option for slightly more money. You can steam these, make them on your stove top or just put them in the microwave with a bit of water. I find the easiest way to get these ready to eat is to heat up some water in a tea kettle. Then put some frozen broccoli in a small bowl and pour the boiling water over the broccoli. Let it sit for 3 or 4 minutes and drain the water out. Just like that you have cooked broccoli that retains it’s bright green color and is not overcooked or dry in the least bit…….…….
