Diveats - Potato & Broccoli Puree

If you're like me, you sometimes struggle with ideas for interesting side dishes for dinner.  First world problems, I know.
Prepare to add a new side dish into your bag of tricks - Broccoli Puree (click the link for recipe)
I was just going to serve this alongside my chicken with dinner.  However, it ended up making so much and had a consistency that so resembled mashed potatoes, that I just decided right then and there to make it a little bed for my chicken to lay it's dead breast.

My husband declared that it looked so good, "It deserved a glass of wine with it."  I'm pretty sure he just wanted an excuse for a glass of wine, but I'll take it!
The only modifications I made were to add garlic powder for a little more flavor.  I also can pretty much guarantee that a little dollop of butter in the mix would taste divine, but I didn't try that this time.  Maybe next time, when I prepare to hibernate for winter.
