Steamed tender-stem Broccoli tossed in Olive oil, garlic & chilli flakes


by: Keli Paan

Something quick & healthy after all the dishes with loaded calories that I have posted this week. I love eating salads/steamed veggies. This dish is a no fuss yummy solution to feed small hunger pangs. You can even have this alongside a steak or as a hot salad. Love the lovely green colors of this dish. The whiff of sautéed garlic & the hint of spice from the chilli flakes added is heavenly, to bring in a tangy twist I add some lemon juice squeezed before serving this.

1.  Add the washed tender-stem broccoli to a steamer which has been set ready to steam. I used a bamboo steamer. Arrange the broccoli so that there is enough space for the steam to move around.

2.  Sprinkle some salt on the stems. Close & steam the stems for about 5-7 minutes. Meanwhile, heat oil in a fry pan & sauté the garlic for about 30s. Now add a pinch of chilli flakes & a pinch of salt. Sauté for 10s. Remember to maintain medium heat. Now add the steamed broccoli stems & toss them around for a minute. Turn off the heat.
