We eat broccoli a couple times each week. I prefer baby broccoli because it's soft, buttery and just plain delicious (and it has very sweet flavor all on its own). We all enjoy our little green trees, but lately I've been bored with the same old steamed dish (what's new), so I jazzed it up with a sprinkle of Celtic sea salt, fresh lemon and my favorite, sautéed garlic. I thought this made a lovely presentation. And what a perfect side for lasagna night!
-2 bunches of baby broccoli
-1/2 cup fresh garlic cloves
-Celtic sea salt (or whatever salt you have on hand)
1. Wash and trim broccoli and steam in filtered water until just slightly tender (or however you like your steamed broccoli).
2. While the broccoli is steaming, saute the garlic. To a small pan add a touch of oil, pinch of salt, and dash of garlic granules (how's that for a recipe). Saute on med/low heat, taking care to not burn the cloves. You'll know they are done when they are no longer spicy. They will be soft, slightly brown, sweet and delicious.
3. To finish, squeeze some lemon over broccoli, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and garnish with lemon and that lovely garlic.
