Broccoli is one of the healthiest veggies in the produce department.  There are so many ways to fix it;  you just have to find two or three your family likes.  Try this one that combines health benefits of broccoli and garlic, plus a great taste.

Broccoli with Garlic

1 1bunch of broccoli,
    OR 1 lb. frozen chopped broccoli
6 garlic cloves 
1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon
salt
2 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon
cayenne pepper (optional)

Wash broccoli and cut into small florets.   Cut the tender parts of the stem into smallish cubes or save for Broccoli Stem Pickled Pennies or Broccoli Slaw.

Steam in a microwave steamer or over boiling water until barely tender and still bright green (about 3-1/2 to 5 minutes in a microwave, depending on the volume of broccoli and water).  Don't overcook:  with all cruciferae, this is a very important guideline!

Place olive oil in a skillet over medium heat.  Chop or mince the garlic.   When the oil is hot, add the salt, then the garlic.  Sauté, stirring frequently, just until the garlic starts to soften.  Quickly add the water, and the cayenne pepper if desired.  Turn heat low and simmer for a couple of minutes.

Place the broccoli in a large glass or crockery serving bowl.  Pour the garlic mixture over it, mixing gently to coat.  Serve and enjoy.

Chill leftovers and add to salad the next day.  Delicious!
