Sautéed Garlicky Broccoli

Sometimes it’s just the simple recipes that bear repeating for our everyday dinners.  Broccoli is by far the most commonly consumed cruciferous vegetable in America.  Studies have established a link between cruciferous vegetables and cancer prevention.

And it’s just good!  I love this recipe because the broccoli is first sautéed in  garlic, onion, and EVOO.  The finishing touch is a quick steam with broth.  Squeeze some fresh lemon juice across the top, and enjoy!

So here’s an insight into my personal goal for meal portions:

Half the plate is green veggies, one quarter is a protein, and the remaining one quarter is a complex carbohydrate.  So, the green veggie is an important part of our meals.
