Plus, it’s yummy and chock-full of nutrients.

Whether you prefer fresh or frozen florets, preparing them the same way week after week can get pretty old, pretty fast. That’s where these recipes come in. Keep scrolling for 10 easy-peasy dinners that start with a bag (or head) our favorite green vegetable.
