Bored with steamed broccoli? Here’s our little secret for turning a bland vegetable into a flavorful, savory side dish that’s even better for you.
Prepare broccoli by removing the stems and cutting into florets if using broccoli heads. Set aside.
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.)
Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Place broccoli florets in the pan, followed by salt, and sauté for about a minute.
Pour water or broth over the broccoli and cover to steam for 5 minutes or until the broccoli is tender.
Optionally, stir in a tablespoon of coconut aminos to add a bit of umami flavor. Enjoy!
