Instruc­tions
  1. First, cook the broc­coli in boil­ing water for 10 minutes.Then, put the strained broc­coli in a pot on the stove, with olive oil cov­er­ing the bot­tom of the pot. Add the minced gar­lic and the minced onion. On low heat, mix it all togeth­er so that the broc­coli becomes cov­ered with gar­lic and onion. This only takes a cou­ple of min­utes.
