Sometimes you just need a quick side dish to round out a meal. Or, sometimes, you realize your kids haven’t eaten anything green in days and your only other option is to serve a green smoothie with dinner.
Or maybe some of you do? Sometimes I forget that the dinner time rush is real and it can be stressful trying to come up with healthy ideas that your family will love. Or even like.

Recipe Ingredients–What You Need
Broccoli is the star of this recipe. I cut mine into small florets because they cook quickly and are easy to eat without a knife. Broccoli is one of the most nutritious vegetables you can eat! It’s high in vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, and potassium, and is a great source of fiber. It also has more protein than most vegetables!
Avocado oil can withstand the high temperature needed for sauteed broccoli as it has a high smoke point.
Fresh Lemon Juice
The lemony flavor is perfect here and lemon also adds more vitamin C!
Salt is necessary for flavor in this recipe.
