No Steamer Steamed Broccoli
Place one large bunch of broccoli, washed and cut into pieces, 3 cloves of fresh chopped garlic, 1/3 cup cold water, 1.5 tablespoons olive oil, several shakes of red pepper flakes and salt to taste in a pot on the stove and cover. Turn heat to medium or medium-high (stoves may vary, so you will need to test what works best for your stove) and set a timer for 10 minutes. After ten minutes, or when the broccoli is bright green and softened, stir and serve immediately. Makes about 4 servings.
