I like cooking frozen broccoli florets in my HOTLOGIC®. For over a year, I cooked this vegetable first and then reheating later. I realized that this was a waste of electricity and my time because this vegetable cooks just fine in a HOTLOGIC®.
The one downside of cooking a green vegetable in a HOTLOGIC® is that it will lose color the longer it stays cooking/heating. It is one vegetable you may not wish to leave in all day.
Variations can be made to the recipe below. Instead of broccoli, you can use frozen cauliflower. A different fat, such as olive oil or bacon grease, can be used instead of butter. You may have a different seasoning that you prefer to use.
I haven’t tried reconstituting freeze-dried broccoli and seeing how well it tastes cooked liked this. When I tried freeze-dried cauliflower, I really did not like the taste of it. I don’t know if it was the brand or a change in flavor that always happens to cauliflower when freeze-dried. It is not a consideration to see if it works as a variation to this recipe.
I have successfully reconstituted freeze-dried broccoli and had it with alfredo sauce, So it might work fine with this recipe. Eventually, I’d like to experiment and try the freeze-dried broccoli in the Egg Casserole.
