Country Crock making Holiday Cooking Easy and Delish! Broccoli Saute #Recipe


logo, Country Crock
Have you started planning your holiday dinner menu yet? My main course is usually always the same, but what I really like to get down to is the sides and you definitely can’t forget the veggies! Side dishes leave room for lots of flavor and creativity. My favorite holiday sides range from my Nanny’s twice baked potatoes to my special garlic green beans; of course both made with Country Crock.

This year Country Crock was generous enough to supply me with the tools and a few famous recipes to make preparing a holiday feast that much easier.

With these tools in hand I’m ready to get down to business – I love the Calphalon pan for quick veggie fixes!

After looking over Country Crocks holiday recipes one really stood out to me, the Holiday Broccoli Saute! We love broccoli yet I always seem to prepare it the same no matter what the occasion. This recipe looked like a delicious twist to our favorite that was also very visually appealing. I like my holiday table to be visually appealing as well as tasty and good for you.

Ingredients:
  •  3 Tbsp. Country Crock® Pumpkin Spice Spread
  •  1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  •  1 Tbsp. white vinegar
  •  1/4 cup raisins
  •  3 Tbsp. water
  •  1 Tbsp. sugar
  •  6 cups fresh broccoli florets, cooked until crisp-tender
  •  1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts
Directions:

Melt Country Crock® Pumpkin Spice Spread in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook onion, stirring frequently, until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar and cook 1 minute. Stir in raisins, water and sugar and cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Stir in broccoli, and then sprinkle with walnuts.

TIP: Use cooked frozen broccoli florets instead of fresh.

As many of you know I like to taste test before a dish reaches my table so Sunday night, I will be giving this recipe a try for the first time and hopefully adding it to the holiday menu. I will let you know how it goes, pictures included because it looks not just tasty, but pretty too!

The festive deserts article said Country Crock is one of your best friends in the baking kitchen—always soft and ready to be stirred right in. Plus, it scoops perfectly, measures easily, mixes instantly and bakes…beautifully. I plan on trying Country Crock in the future

I have a lot of favorites that are requested throughout the year, but I think my best is Sweet Potato Pie recipe. I always cook extra for holidays because well the slices seem to get cut bigger and bigger every year.
