Balsamic Glazed Broccoli by Mom De Cuisine

Back to basics. Sometimes I get so caught up in creating new recipes or recreating ones we’ve experienced on our travels that I forget about the basics. The ones that we eat on at least a semi-regular basis. Ones I could cook with my eyes closed. I’ve loved that this blog started out as a way to catalogue and remember recipes but has transformed into a narrative of our expat lives. However, sometimes it’s good to remember the foundations. I want my kids to have these kids of recipes, not just the crazy ones mom came up with because we once went to this restaurant in this foreign city and had a great meal. These are the recipes of our real life. My kids really eat this broccoli (or cry when being told to eat it, then after eating it hesitantly admit that they actually do like broccoli.) So here’s to the basics, and basically one of my favorite ways to eat broccoli.
