Try my roasted broccoli recipe. When the broccoli is roasted, it becomes crispy and browned and takes on a nutty, sweet flavor.
For something a little more elegant, try my green beans with bacon. Kids love bacon (who doesn't?), so why not pair it with the green beans to make the beans more appealing?
Try all of these recipes, and let me know what you think.
