This is how to make shredded broccoli casserole
This is how it is done: Prepare the broccoli. Wash the broccoli well. To do this, pour cold water into the sink. Add the vegetables, let them soak for a while and toss a little. Then hold the broccoli under running water to wash off the loose dirt. Then cut the small flowers. Alternatively: use frozen broccoli. In both cases, the vegetables do not need to be cooked beforehand.
