“A favorite side dish veggie I often make for my family. Don't walk away from the pan - broccoli cooks very quickly and you need to check it soon to prevent it overcooking. Sometimes it will take a little longer to cook, other times it will take a little less. I have a glass lid on my saucepan, so I can see when it is ready - it gets very bright green when it is ready, then very quickly starts to turn olive green if it cooks a little too long. I like mine tender, but still a little crispy - the longer you cook it, the softer it gets, but you also lose that lovely color. It is up to you.”
