Author Notes

It’s hard to imagine an easier, faster, or healthier side dish. Steaming broccoli in the microwave preserves its brilliant green color (and its nutrients!). For frozen broccoli, add 1 teaspoon water per cup of broccoli to quickly boost the steam. You shouldn’t need to change your cook time.

Note: This recipe was created for a 1000-watt microwave. Head to cookanyday.com to find the original recipe and adjust cooking times for other microwave wattages.
