Just a different way to cook broccoli (and to me, anything that is spicy or has garlic is good)!

Directions

  1. Cut broccoli into bite sized pieces.
  2. Boil in salted water for about 5 to 7 minutes (broccoli should just start to soften).
  3. Rinse under COLD water (to stop the cooking).
  4. Dry to remove any excess water.
  5. In a large skillet, heat the oil until hot.
  6. Add the garlic and pepper flakes.
  7. Sauté for 1 minute.
  8. Add the broccoli and "some" of the broth. (I say "some" as you don't want it soaking in it, you just want it to help steam and add flavor)
  9. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes (depending on the way you like your broccoli, tender or crisp) stirring the entire time. Season lightly with table salt.
  10. As everyone has their own tastes, increase or decrease the garlic and or pepper flakes as desired.
