Servings: 2 servings
- 1 head broccoli
- water (fill your pot with 1 inch of water)
- salt and pepper to taste
Bring one inch of water to a boil in your pot.
While you're waiting for your water to boil, use a knife to cut the head of broccoli into florets.
Add your steamer basket to the pot and place the broccoli florets on the steamer. Reduce the heat to medium, add lid and steam for 5-6 minutes, for tender crisp broccoli.
