I have started making Thanksgiving side dishes to post here before the big day, so if any of you are looking for simple vegetarian side dishes then you can add these to your repertoire.

This broccoli side dish is truly buttery and garlicky. It’s very simple to make — takes about 15~20 minutes at the most and is sure to be a hit at your Thanksgiving table. My 2 year old absolutely loved it and so it is kid-approved/ kid-friendly dish.

Recipe adapted from Vegetarian Times magazine.

  3. Stir in the parsley and 1tbsp water.
