Steamed Broccoli

I like steamed broccoli. The best way to cook broccoli is boil it in water for five minutes, turn off the burner, cover the pot, and let it set for 20 minutes. You get tender broccoli that isn’t overcooked to mush.

The last time I made an omelet with broccoli, I just added small florets with the eggs. It tasted awful. Too crunchy for me.

Crunchy broccoli is great if eating it raw, dipped in ranch dressing. This time, however, I steamed broccoli the best way as described above. Then I added small tender florets to my omelet. It was perfect.

I included an on-the-spur-of-the-moment fruit decision to my breakfast – fried banana! It was different but tasty.

I had plenty of leftover steamed broccoli, and I cooked brown rice and had enough for three more snacks or lunches.

  1. I like to blanch the broccoli and then chop it up and sautee it with onions before putting it into the omelette.

      Yes, the broccoli is much more tender that way.
