Broccoli Stir Fry with Garlic

Looking for a delicious and simple veggie dish? This Simple Broccoli Stir Fry with Garlic is perfect… and fast for those of you that are way too hungry to wait more than 10 minutes for your food!

Growing up in an Asian household, I LOVED broccoli. My mom always stir fried them and the broccoli comes out crunchy and delicious. I never understood why my other classmates hated it so much… until I tried some of my elementary school cafeteria’s mushy slob of broccoli.

I’m not sure if that is still the way they make it – but now I understand… there are definitely different ways to cook broccoli and it definitely affects how much you like to eat them.

This recipe will show you how to cook it stove top and have it be not a mushy slob. Woot!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of broccoli florets
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil/fat of choice (Ex: Coconut Oil)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3-6 cloves of garlic (I love garlic…)
  • Sea salt, as desired

Instruction

If you bought a whole head of broccoli, chop it in to florets first.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil and garlic over medium heat until garlic begins to brown (takes about 30 seconds or so), and then add broccoli florets. Stir occasionally for about a minute.

Add water and stir, and then cook covered on medium-low heat for about 2 minutes.

Uncover and cook stirring occasionally at high heat for 3 more minutes or until broccoli is cooked thoroughly.

The broccoli should now be bright green and tender.

Remove from heat and serve!
