Over-cooking broccoli can result in a tasteless mush. A quick saute with garlic and a splash of water, and that is enough to not only cook this under-appreciated vegetable but also retain all it's flavour and nutrition
Heat the oil in the pan.
Add garlic and saute for a few minutes.
Add broccoli florets and cook and toss lightly for a few minutes. Add salt .
A splash of water and cover pan. Remove cover and toss.
Replace cover and leave it for a few minutes.
When I have company or I'm in a mood for more flavour, I add 1/2 tsp of chilli peppers to the oil or cumin seeds or both. They add a delicious flavour to the broccoli.
