Sauteed Broccoli

Sauteed Broccoli

Linda Larsen
Sautéed Broccoli has a wonderful bright green color and crisp tender texture in this two step cooking method.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 lb. fresh broccoli
  • 3 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste


Cut the broccoli into individual florets. Cut stems into pieces roughly the same size as the florets. Place broccoli in large pot, and bring to boil in salted water to cover. Reduce heat and simmer 3-4 minutes until broccoli is just crisp-tender. Drain thoroughly.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook garlic for 1 minute. Add the drained broccoli and cook 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until broccoli is glazed and tender. Sprinkle with lemon juice, salt, and pepper and serve.

Great ""Paleo"" recipe, Guest William David Pleasance

I have tried to radically re-configure my diet by following the main principles of the ""paleo"" diet (that is, a pre-agricultural man diet). This recipe is great tasting and great nutritionally. Try it!
