(Garlic Broccoli Salad, Broccoli Side-dish)

Garlic Broccoli is one of my favorite recipes. It is so simple to put together and tastes very good. No need to mention that this preparation is healthy too. I make it often as a side dish whenever I make burger or sandwich. You can also have it as a simple salad if you are on diet.

I just make it very easily in the microwave. It is perfect to make for lunch boxes too.

Recipe For Garlic Broccoli


  • Broccoli - 1 crown
  • Butter/Olive Oil -1 tbsp
  • Garlic - 1/2 tsp (minced or use garlic powder)
  • Red Pepper Flakes - 1/4 tsp

  3. Microwave on high power for 2-3 minutes. The florets will turn dark green in color. It should retain its crispiness for best taste.

Serving Suggestion

  • Enjoy the garlic broccoli by itself as a salad.
  • You can have it as a side dish for burger, sandwich, parota, chapatti, etc.
