This is the recipe I use when steaming Broccoli. It lightly infuses the broccoli with the seasonings without adding seasoning on top after cooking. I use a tupperware microwave steamer for this recipe.
- In base of steamer, add lemon juice, garlic, and basil leaves.
- Put the middle piece on top and put broccoli on it.
- Put lid on steamer.
- Microwave on high for 1 minute. Let it stand for 1 minute. Check for color and tenderness. (if still too raw, microwave for another 30 seconds).
This is a quick and simple recipe! I used a 10-oz package of frozen chopped broccoli, since it was in my freezer for no particular reason. An entire cup of lemon juice seemed like a lot, so I used 3/4 cup, and I'm glad I did; it was still a bit too citrusy for my taste. I used jarred minced garlic and dried sweet basil, but I didn't measure them out, just eyeballed it. It was still lovely. Made for My-3-Chefs, November 2009. Thanks for posting!
