Steamed Broccoli with Garlic and Parmesan

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 pounds broccoli florets, washed 
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  1. Wash hands with soap and water. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add garlic and lemon peel and toss; do not allow garlic to brown.

  2. Add broccoli and toss to coat with seasonings. Add water and quickly cover with a tightly fitting lid. Cook until broccoli is crisp-tender and water has evaporated. This will take about 5 to 6 minutes. 

  3. Taste and season with salt and black pepper. Toss with parmesan cheese. Serve. 

    Store in the refrigerator for up to four days.
