Sautéed Broccoli

Adapted from Food Network.

This is one of my favorite ways to prepare broccoli.


  • 1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • Pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 bunch broccoli, trimmed and cut into bite-size pieces (frozen works too)
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat the olive oil, garlic, and pepper flakes in a large skillet of medium heat until fragrant and garlic begins to brown, about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in broccoli and cook until the broccoli is bright green, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken broth and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Reduce to simmer, cover, and cook about 3 to 5 minutes (or 5-7 if frozen).
