|This is the empty bag I had to dig out of the trash because I forgot to photo it!|
The trick is to start with fresh broccoli in microwave-in-the-bag packaging! I buy the small bag. I stick it in the microwave for 2 minutes (to fully cook, it says to cook on high for 3-4 minutes). So I'm just partially cooking.
Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil in a skillet and add some chopped garlic. When the broccoli finishes the 2 minutes in the microwave, open the package and dump it in the skillet.
Sprinkle with kosher salt. Cook until done to your taste. But don't cook it to death! It's great to leave crisp-tender. (is that a real word??) :)
This makes broccoli the most gorgeous bright green color! And very tasty.
So, what's your favorite veggie side dish? (And don't tell me potatoes! Give me one that's not so starchy.) :)
