I prefer shredded Italian cheese as cheddar has higher fat content, alas I know I am still too heavy handed with it. Sometimes I steam broccoli in sauté pan (that's all I have) till bright green having steamed it in the pan in a splash of low sodium chicken broth. After two years of broccoli though I am looking for something knew that isn't bitter, raw or gassy.

Pickling them is great for me. You can marinade them in a mix of vinegar and oil with seasonings and maybe a little truvia.

I also love them roasted. It's so easy. Just toss what ever you are cooking in some olive oil, sea salt and herbs like rosemary or tarragon. Pop them in the oven for about 30 minutes on 400 degrees and there you go. I also will blend that in my blender until smooth and use it as a dip for celery or carrots. YUM

Fry them in a pan coated with olive oil. Add lemon juice and garlic. Al dente only, please, and don't forget the salt and pepper! :)

Understand the "al dente" important for added nutrition but for me it just isn't quite cooked enough.

I take fresh asparagus or brussel sprouts and mist them with olive oil. Then roast them in the oven until golden brown. Even converted my husband to oven roasted veggies. Check out Penzeys Spices. They have loads of salf-free spice mixes that are great on veggies.

Very low carb I sometimes put bacon in mine with light seasoning and sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on mine after tossing it in a frying pan
