Just steamed broccoli

Top Review by rosie316

This way of making broccoli will be the only way from now on! This turned out beautifully. Yes, it is "just steamed broccoli", like it states from the get go. It gives anyone a starting point to do whatever they want with it. I made this for dinner last night and served this along with a homemade cheese sauce. It was delicious! (I wish I could say the same for my hubby's grilled pork-chops, ugh). Thank you for posting your method of making broccoli. I will never boil it again. (Made for "Name That Ingredient" tag)


  1. Put a steamer basket in a pot with the water and heat to boiling.
  2. Chop the broccoli into pieces.
  3. Once water is boiling, add the broccoli into the steamer and put the lid on.
  4. Steam for around five minutes or until broccoli is bright green and tender but still quite firm.
