Ingredients

  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt or more if desired
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos (optional)

Instructions

  1. Prepare broccoli by removing the stems and cutting into florets if using broccoli heads. Set aside.

  2. In a large sauté pan (with a lid), heat coconut oil over medium heat for about 5 minutes. (It might take less time for the oil to heat up on a gas stove.)

  3. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  4. Place broccoli florets in the pan, followed by salt, and sauté for about a minute.

  5. Pour water or broth over the broccoli and cover to steam for 5 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.

  6. Optionally, stir in a tablespoon of coconut aminos to add a bit of umami flavor. Enjoy!
