Description

Boiled broccoli comes out perfectly crisp tender and bright green! Spritz with lemon and drizzle with olive oil, and it’s a healthy and easy side dish.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds (2 large heads) broccoli
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Chop the broccoli into florets.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and boil them for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes until bright green and crisp tender, taste testing often (basically, don’t leave the pot!). Once they’re cooked, drain into a colander.
  3. Place in the serving dish and stir in the olive oil, lemon juice, and kosher salt. Taste and add additional seasoning to taste.
