This is a nice way to have broccoli when you're bored of just steaming it plain.

What a tasty way to prepare broccoli! Such a nice change of pace from regular old steamed broccoli. I served this with macaroni and cheese. While I still could not convince the 2yo twins to eat it, my 5yo had TWO servings, as did hubby, who dislikes broccoli unless smothered in processed cheese. This one's a winner for sure. Thanks for posting!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the broccoli stem and cut off the very bottom piece. Cut it lengthwise into quarters.
  2. Put the water and broccoli into a skillet just big enough for it to fit in one layer. Cover and turn the heat to medium.
  3. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Uncover, and salt to taste. Turn the heat to high and cook until the water all boils off.
  5. Drizzle on the olive oil, and continue to cook for a few minutes, turning the broccoli pieces with tongs, until it's getting browned in places.
  6. Sprinkle with hot red pepper flakes before serving.
