I'm making broccoli and potatoes scalloped and I can't find any recipes that use fresh broccoli. S should I cook it first or not?
I wouldn't. I would think it you did it would end up really mushy.
Yeah broccoli is usually best with minimal cooking. If it's going to be baked in with the potatoes anyways definitely don't precook, it'll turn to mush.
If it's layered underneath the potato, the buildup of steam should be enough to cook it :)
It seems to be cooking fine. Just 20 more minutes until dinner. It looks and smells delicious.
