This is delicious and very healthy!
1 bunch broccoli (1 pound), cut into small pieces, stalks peeled and thinly sliced (about 6 cups)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter (use less or use Country Crock if you are watching fat)
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper
Cook the broccoli in lightly salted boiling water until tender, 5 minutes. Drain.
Add the butter and garlic to the saucepan and cook until the garlic is softened, 1 to 2 minutes.
Toss with the salt and a few grinds of pepper.
I modified the original recipe at http://www.realsimple.com/food-recipes/browse-all-recipes/garlic-butter-broccoli-10000001044810/index.html
I like my broccoli tender, not crisp. Also, I like a lot more garlic and butter than this recipe had.
