Joyful greens:Stir fried Broccoli

This is another easy recipe that is quick and also healthy by all means. Broccoli is packed with all the goodness like essential phytonutrients, anti-oxidants, vitamins etc., which are very good for health. It has a distinct flavor much like cauliflower, cabbage, and they belong to the cabbage family. The vibrant green color is so inviting and when sauteed with garlic and onions it makes it even more tasty. I can eat a bowl of this dish and it makes a meal by itself.


1 small onion chopped into length wise pieces
4 garlic cloves crushed
3 cups Broccoli florets(cleaned and washed)
4 tsp Olive oil
Salt to taste
1/4 tsp black pepper


1. Heat Olive oil in a non stick pan, when oil is hot add the crushed garlic pieces and fry till they are light golden in color.

2. Now add the onion pieces and fry till they are translucent on a medium heat. Add salt and fry for a minute or two.

3. Add the broccoli florets and the black pepper and stir fry on high flame just until they start turning vibrant green(until they are steamed) may be roughly about 2 to 3 minutes. Cover and turn off the heat and set it aside.

4. Serve hot with rice and rasam/dal or just by itself.

P.S: Do not over fry or cook the broccoli florets because they would loose all the nutritional value.
