Garlic Lemon Broccoli
2 Large Heads of Broccoli, washed and cut into bit sized pieces
5 Cloves of Garlic, cleaned and finely chopped
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/3 Cup Lemon Juice
1/3 Cup Dry White Wine
Chop garlic finely and saute in olive oil in large skillet over medium high heat until lightly browned, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Add chopped broccoli, lemon juice and wine.
Cover, lower heat to medium and let simmer until broccoli is of desired tenderness, about 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. This yields a tender-crisp broccoli. If you prefer your broccoli softer, then let it steam for a few minutes longer.
This recipe serves 4 to 6 and can be doubled.
