If you need a good steamed broccoli recipe look no further because this is the best broccoli seasoning ever!
One of the reasons I don’t love veggies is because I typically don’t like frozen/canned varieties and fresh ones take too long to deal with (yes, I am that lazy.) This discovery has opened up a whole new world of scrumptious vegetable options to me… and this seasoning… to DIE for. The husband made it up, and I made him make it three nights in a row. Then, I made him teach me. Then one time I measured so that I could share it on the blog with all of you!
How to season broccoli:
You ready for this easy step by step steamed broccoli recipe? Here we go!
If you think you don't like broccoli, wait until you give this delicious seasoning a try! Best part is, it's still healthy!
- 3 cups fresh broccoli
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
- Pepper to taste
- 1/4 teaspoon thyme
Put your broccoli and your water in a microwave safe bowl and cover loosely with saran wrap. Microwave for approximately 7 minutes.
When your broccoli is cooked according to your preferences (I usually check a couple times just to make sure it doesn't cook too much or too little) remove it from microwave and drain excess water, if any.
Add all your seasonings and toss to coat.
Serve with your favorite meal and enjoy!
I should also mention, my kids LOVE this recipe too! They are picky with a capital P, but no one complains about this broccoli seasoning!
