As I have mentioned before, I live with a family of meatatarians. (As with this ever popular Hamburger Casserole recipe.) They love fruits and some veggies, especially if they are grown from the garden, but broccoli is strictly forbidden. However, every once in a while, I make something with broccoli that gets a slight smile and nod.
Couldn’t admit they like it completely, after all, they have reputations to uphold. 😉

Please do not at almond milk to the recipe. Especially vanilla almond milk. It just doesn’t taste right. Trust me. 😉
