    My 3.5 year old and 10 month old loved this! Even myself and hubby had a serving. So simple and quick to whip up. Will definitely make again 🙂

    This recipe was easy and quick to prepare. Instead of using our food processor, I opted to use our immersion blender to blend the broccoli, cream cheese, and (fresh) garlic). This meal was a hit with my kids! I’d love to see another version of this recipe that includes chicken.
