I prefer my fresh produce al dente. Increase cooking times if desired.

How to Make Red Broccoli

Step-by-Step

  1. Note: I consider a large beet 2 to 3 in. in diam. After preparing beets place in a 3 quart casserole dish. microwave on high for 5 minutes covered.
  2. Add prepared broccoli over the top of the partially cooked beets. Sprinkle dry ingredients over the top. Pour slowly and evenly the olive oil and maple syrup on top. Microwave 5 minutes on high covered. Let rest for 2 minutes.
  3. Using a large spoon lift the beets from the bottom of the dish and mix the beets and broccoli evenly. If you prefer a less al dente dish, cook, covered in the microwave for additional time. Microwaves vary, so cook times may need to be adjusted to suit your taste.
