Recipe: My Favorite Broccoli

Serves 4

- 1 pound broccoli

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- ½ teaspoon salt

- 1/8 to ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

- 2 teaspoons water

- 1 medium clove garlic, minced

1. Trim broccoli and cut into florets. Put in a colander and rinse well. (Do not pat dry.)

2. Put olive oil, salt and crushed pepper flakes into a heavy skillet and place over medium heat. When hot, add broccoli, cover and cook 2 minutes. (Turn heat to medium-low if necessary to keep broccoli from browning.) Stir in water and garlic. Cover and cook an additional 3 to 4 minutes, or until just tender. Serve the broccoli hot or cold.
