Blanching broccoli is so easy. It is perfect for setting the bright green color of the broccoli. Bring a pan of water with a teaspoon of salt to a boil. Add the broccoli. When the water comes back to a boil, pour the broccoli into a strainer. Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking.

    These sound great— for anything from breakfast to happy hour snacks. I bet you could make them up before an event and have them all ready to go. Or, have them ready for a weekday breakfast! Love it! Thanks for sharing! Pinned.
