    I hate waisting my broccoli in boiling water. Maybe lukewarm water, they can wade and chill, just kind of hang out, but boiling water is just cruel. And only up to the waist. Talk about needless torture.

    ;)

    Well, you need to put them in boiling something when you make delicious broccoli soup with stilton! Ha, ha!

    My question: so when a recipe states 5gm carbs, does that mean per serving?

    Yes, all nutritional values listed are per serving.

    I made this recipe yesterday and it was very good. But I cooked the broccoli quite a bit longer and covered the pan for the last 5 minutes so that it would cook through. It was still nice and crunchy but at least cooked ;-). As suggested I added sliced mushrooms and capers, it was perfect !
