A healthy broccoli recipe on the Epicurious website involves tossing steamed broccoli florets in a cooked mixture of chopped garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Healthy broccoli recipes are also available on the Food Network and Martha Stewart websites.
To make a Roman-style broccoli dish according to the instructions on the Food Network website, blanch broccoli florets in a large pot of salted water, and then set them aside. Gently toast bread crumbs with olive oil in a saucepan, and then set them aside. Sauté garlic slices in a skillet until they turn golden before stirring in white wine, broccoli florets, red pepper flakes and salt. Continue to cook and stir the ingredients until the liquid reduces and the broccoli florets are thoroughly hot, and then serve the mixture with a topping of lemon zest and toasted bread crumbs.
To follow the recipe for broccoli and chickpea salad from the Martha Stewart website, steam broccoli florets until they are tender, and then allow the florets to cool before mixing them with canned chickpeas, sliced scallions, chopped parsley and toasted pine nuts. Mix minced garlic, Dijon mustard, honey, lemon zest and lemon juice in another bowl. Gradually whisk in olive oil to create an emulsified dressing, and then add salt and pepper to taste. Toss the dressing throughout the broccoli mixture.
