Looking for the perfect quick and easy vegetable side dish that your kids will go nuts for? Look no further than this 5-Minute Parmesan Ranch Broccoli!
My kids are pretty typical when it comes to vegetables. They don’t want to eat them unless they are drowning in ranch. Sound familiar? I was getting a little tired of watching them slurp up puddles of ranch dressing just to get them to eat a few pieces of broccoli.
So how to get your kids to eat vegetables without a ton of sauce? Add flavor!
I love sauteing my veggies because I can make sure they don’t come out too soggy. I love when they are soft but still have a nice crunch to them. This Parmesan Ranch Broccoli cooks in a little bit of butter over a medium-high heat. Then the broccoli is sprinkled with a teaspoon of Ranch dressing mix. That’s pretty much it. It’s a lot healthier than drowning in Ranch and it’s super quick and easy.
Both of my kids, even my veggie-hating son, loved it! He ate every piece on his plate without any prodding from me. I’d call that a win.
