Chances are if you just add cheese, the whole family will eat their vegetables.

Ingredients

olive oil

2 tsp

uncooked broccoli

1 pound(s), chopped and steamed

garlic clove(s)

3 medium clove(s), minced

dried oregano

¼ tsp, crumbled

shredded fat-free Cheddar cheese

½ cup(s), sharp variety

roasted red peppers (packed in water)

¼ cup(s), cut into matchstick-thin strips

Instructions

  1. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli, garlic, and oregano; cook, stirring frequently, until the garlic is golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cheese and roasted pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Yields about 3/4 cup per serving.

Notes

If there are no kids around and you want to skip the cheddar, you’ll reduce the per-serving SmartPoints value.To steam the broccoli, put it in a steamer basket and set in a saucepan over 1 inch of boiling water. Cover tightly and steam until the broccoli is crisp-tender, about 3 minutes.
