I'm still trying to cook more side dishes, so today I made a quick, simple broccoli. It was good, but I felt like the broccoli was a little bit watered down and soggy, even though we only cooked it for like 2 minutes. We'll keep trying new side-dish recipes.
Broccoli with Red Pepper Flakes
Cooking Light, March 2007
2 teaspoons olive oil
6 cups broccoli florets (about 1 head)

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/4 cup water
Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, kosher salt, crushed red pepper, and sliced garlic. Sauté 2 minutes. Add 1/4 cup water. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 2 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
