I love this recipe because it makes a nice change from regular steamed broccoli. When I make this, I like to use a red pepper to get more color. You should also consider doing a mixture of red and yellow, or all three colors! This is a vegetable side dish recipe to serve 4 people: I hope you like it!
- 12 ounces fresh broccoli
- nonstick cooking spray (or cooking oil)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder

- 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper
