Broccoli Slaw...the untapped veggie wonder
The idea to use broccoli slaw came from when I was watching Hungry Girl on the Cooking Channel. I honestly had never even heard of it before but Lisa was talking about what a vitamin-packed, low-cal and super healthy swap it was for other veggies, so I thought I would try it out.
This is my go-to recipe for Broccoli Slaw and it only takes about 7 minutes from start to finish! Could not be easier.
1 small package broccoli slaw (about 2 large servings)
1 tbsp olive oil
4 loves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste
- Heat your pan on the high end of medium-high heat (you want some browning here!)
- Add oil and entire package of broccoli slaw
- Cook for about 4 minutes and add garlic
- Cook for 3 more minutes and add cheese
So healthy and delicious, and can be added to all sorts of other dishes like pasta sauce, frittatas and much more. Enjoy!
