Steamed Broccoli With Chorizo

Steamed Broccoli With Chorizo

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: about 3/4 cup broccoli mixture)

Broccoli is a go-to veggie side for many families yet is often served very plain. Here we offer a great way to dress it up with the addition of hearty chorizo and spicy chiles. Topped with a kick of chipotle chiles and lime, this broccoli side dish is not shy on flavor. Mexican chorizo is a spicy ground meat sausage that adds a kick of savory goodness to any bland bowl of veggies. Sub your favorite veggie sausage for an equally delicious vegetarian option. This easy side comes together in less than 10 minutes, and it's a simple dish that the whole family can enjoy. Looking for other variations? Try steamed broccoli with creamy tarragon dressing, with tomato ragout, or with garlic and red onion.
