Steamed Broccoli

I learned how to do this when I was a waitress for a very popular steakhouse. Stolen!


  • 1 fresh broccoli head
  • 1 tbl. butter
  • Kosher salt


  1. Rinse broccoli and cut broccoli into florets.
  2. Place florets in a microwave-safe bowl and season with kosher salt to taste.
  3. Add 1 tbl. butter to florets.
  4. Cover bowl with a plate and microwave on high for 4 minutes.


Pretty simple!

If you’re only making enough broccoli to serve one person, you can put a handful of the florets in a plastic baggie. If it’s a Ziplock bag, just don’t zip it up all the way. Eaaasssy and perfect for a lunch snack.
