Broccoli is not only low in calories, but high in nutrition as well. One cup has all the vitamin A and twice the vitamin C you need each day.


Makes 7 servings


2 packages (10 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli
1 cup fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 teaspoons dried minced onion (optional)


  1. Combine broccoli, chicken broth, mayonnaise and onion, if desired in large saucepan. Simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until broccoli is tender.
  2. Uncover; continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until liquid has evaporated.
