Steamed Broccoli


  • 1 bunch of broccoli


Rinse your broccoli well, and break into large florets. Cut off the stem and peel off any thick skin, quarter or halve the stem lengthwise. If you have a steamer, bring 1 inch of water to a boil in the bottom of it, add broccoli and cover. If you don't have a steamer, just put your broccoli directly into 1 inch of boiling water in a saucepan and cover. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until you can pierce the broccoli with a fork. (Don't let it overcook, your broccoli will become mush quickly.) Put in a serving dish and dress to taste with: butter, olive oil, flax seed oil, mayonnaise, lemon zest or juice, balsamic vinegar, toasted almonds, or sesame seeds.
