Perfect Every Time Broccoli

Crunchy and delicious. This healthy and quick side produces perfect results every time.

You'll need:

2 heads of broccoli, cut into big florets, washed, discard bottoms
6 big garlic cloves cut into thirds, big so they don't burn
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste

Heat a large skillet on a medium low flame
Toss in garlic and cook till slightly golden, approximately 5 minutes, but be sure they are just golden
Add in broccoli, still wet and cover. Raise to medium heat. The water on the washed broccoli will provide enough moisture to steam the broccoli.
Cook for 6 minutes, tossing them once half way through.
Salt and pepper them.
Serve immediately, if not, be sure to leave uncovered so they don't soften too much.
Great as a side for chicken or any main course item

Serves 6


  1. This revolutionized my broccoli world. I liked broccoli before but this could turn it into a real "red light" food for me.
