Broccoli is a go-to veggie side for many families yet is often served very plain, making it the vegetable that no one wants for dinner. Rather than slathering it with cream and cheese, we prefer to sauté it with herbs, vegetables, and oils to brighten the flavor. These are simple ways to use the foods that you have on hand that will liven up this veggie without adding extra calories and fat. Broccoli is such an easy, versatile side dish, as it absorbs fresh flavor from whatever it's cooked with. Any leftovers can be tossed in a soup or salad the next day. Looking for other variations? Try steamed broccoli with chorizo, with tomato ragout, or with a creamy tarragon dressing.

How to Make It

Combine 3/4 cup water, butter, and garlic in a large skillet over high heat; bring to a boil. Add onion and broccoli to pan; cover and simmer 4 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Sprinkle evenly with salt.
