Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 55 - Baby Broccoli
When we have “regular” (as opposed to “baby”) broccoli, I
normally cook it in a steamer. However,
when we have BABY BROCCOLI I sauté it.
And THAT, my friends, may be the reason baby broccoli is tastier than
Find it in the fresh vegetable section
This vegetable is a staple in our house (I crave green
veggies – I like to have at least one with every dinner). The 8 oz package is just enough for two
people (well, it is enough for two people to each have a serving, then for one
person (ME!) to have seconds!).
Here is how I normally cook it – wash, cut the end tips
off, heat up some EVOO and sriracha in a pan, put baby broccoli in, cover,
after a minute or two add some fresh lemon, salt, and pepper, cover and cook a
few minutes more. You have to turn them
a couple of times while cooking and oh man – are they good! The sriracha mixed with lemon makes an
amazing burnt-like sauce. Note: if not everyone in your house likes HOT
stuff, do it without sriracha. Last night
I made them without it, I just used EVOO, pumpkin seed oil, and lemon
juice. Still tasty!
