You may think that it’s as simple as drizzling mustard on boiled broccoli, and while that does work, there are a few other ways to make this pairing more fun. For those making a salad, combine mustard with olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and minced garlic for a simple vinaigrette with a bright, tangy taste. If you want something with a sweeter, creamier touch, a dressing made from mustard, honey, Greek yogurt, and a few spices is an excellent choice.
Got a little bit of time on your hands? Pull out a saucepan and whip up a mustard cheese sauce over medium heat to either drizzle over the broccoli or serve as a dip alongside the vegetable for a unique, healthy snack. The sauce can include grated cheese, milk, butter, flour, salt, and pepper, and perhaps even a hot sauce for a subtle spicy kick.
For a more lavish twist, create a mustard glaze to brush over the boiled broccoli and roast it in the oven for a few minutes until caramelized. A simple mixture of red wine vinegar, olive oil, butter, and mustard should do the trick. Of course, you can also get a little experimental and go for honey and a dash of soy sauce to infuse the broccoli with a special umami taste.
