My worst enemy as a child. Seriously, I only recently like in the past few years started eating this green super food again. And I only eat it COOKED. Raw broccoli makes me gag.....Sorry to all you lovers out there...please eat my portion!!!
FUN FACT- Did you know that eating steamed broccoli reduces your risk of a heart attack! And since they run in the Hubby's family, don't think I am not cooking this at least once a week!!!
Conveniently, the easiest way to make broccoli is steamed in the microwave which takes less then 10 minutes.
Here is what you need
A large Bag of frozen broccoli florets or heads
1/4 cup water
salt to taste
1/2 the juice of a lemon or 1tbsp of lemon juice
2 cloves of garlic zested or diced
2 tbsps of EVOO or butter if needed
Here is what to doOpen the bag of frozen broccoli and place the contents in a microwave safe bowl. Fill the bowl with the water, lemon juice and garlic. Mix till all frozen greens are coated. Cover. Microwave for 4-6 minutes on high based on the strength of your microwave. Drain. Then taste! Add salt and/or butter/ oil if needed!
I told you this was simpleTips-
- I like to serve this with chick or fish. I also toss this in with my pasta or fried rice for extra vitamins without the calories.
- This is great if you want to add a little chilli powder for a little spice and metabolism boaster
