  • Cast Iron
  • or large sauté pan


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4-5 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/2 lbs broccoli florets about 5 crowns
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable stock or chicken or beef stock


  • Heat oil in a cast iron or large sauté pan on medium.
  • Add garlic and stir and cook for 60-90 seconds.
  • Add broccoli stir to coat with oil and garlic. Cook for another minute. Add garlic and onion powder and stock to pan, stir to combine and cover.
  • Let cook covered for 8 minutes.
  • Give a final stir and serve immediately.


Frozen vs. Fresh:  While we prefer fresh, you can absolutely use frozen and just add the frozen florets to the hot pan.  Because of the moisture that will be released from the frozen florets, you will only need about 1/4 cup of stock and cook for an additional minute or two. 
Customize:  Add more onion powder.  Less garlic.  Or add some red pepper flakes for a little heat!
