The first time I tried steamed Asparagus Spears, I thought they were digusting. It was very unexpected because I remember liking them as a kid and it seemed unlikely that I would have lost such a sophisticated taste over the years. ;)
But then I discovered a great way to add flavor to my steamed spears...just use chicken broth!
I added about a 1/4 cup of an all-natural, fat free, low sodium chicken broth in with the veggies that I am cooking and voila! Tasty sidedish that doesn't go against the protocol!
I've tried this with asparagus, broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans. Yum!
