Broccoli (steamed, Microwave)

Broccoli (steamed, Microwave)

Ready in 6 minutes

Simple, colorful and nutritious side-dish. One of the few dishes that tastes just as good when steamed in the microwave!

I bet you don't need a recipe for this common side-dish, and that's OK! Simply posting here to make it easy to recipe-link later to other dishes.

"Simple, but essential recipe! For my taste, 4 minutes are too short, 5-6 is better. (My microwave uses 900 watts at max power.) Also, time should be increased when two or more broccoli head are microwaved together. "

Four minutes is just the right amount of time! Very good. Keep covered, and serve immediately. Top with butter, salt and pepper.
