Crisp, fresh broccoli cooked to perfection in the sous vide! This three ingredient recipe yields tender and lightly seasoned broccoli. The perfect healthy side dish to any meal!
What Makes This Recipe So Good
- This sous vide recipe is totally foolproof! The sous vide controls the temperature, cooking perfect broccoli every time.
- It comes together in just 10 minutes! This hands-off recipe yields tender veggies in virtually no time at all.
- It’s lightly seasoned and make for a great pairing to any main course! Serve this sous vide broccoli alongside your favorite protein for a complete and healthy meal. Or better yet, cook the main course in the sous vide, too, for an even easier meal!
- Feel free to alter the cook time based on how well done you like your broccoli! For softer broccoli, cook for an entire 15 minutes. Though for crisper broccoli, set the sous vide to just 10 minutes.
- Once done cooking, immediately transfer the broccoli to an ice bath. The ice water will stop the cooking and lock in freshness. Also, the key to super vibrant veggies is always shocking it in ice water right after cooking.
- Spice up this broccoli any way you’d like! Finish it off with a drizzle of soy sauce, or even a sprinkling of garlic powder. I also love serving this sous vide broccoli with fresh herbs to further emphasize the deliciously fresh flavors.
