Garlic Butter Steamed Broccoli

I’m going to be honest, I do not like broccoli. Like at all. But when I started to have children, I decided that I needed to at least attempt to eat the kinds of food that I want my kiddos to eat. So besides completely smothered in cheese, this is the only broccoli recipe I actually like. And best of all is my whole family loves it too!
