In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil, garlic, and ginger. Cook these for a minute, then add the broccoli florets. Add 2 tablespoons of water, cover the skillet and cook on low for 3 to 4 minutes. Pro tip - Make sure the florets are in a single layer so they cook evenly. Covering the pan will keep the stems inside which helps soften the stalk making them tender.
Open the skillet, drizzle the soy sauce, sprinkle some salt and black pepper.
Check to ensure the stalks (stems) are tender. If not, cook uncovered for another 2 minutes. Pro tip - We do not cook broccoli covered for more than 4 minutes because it may lose its beautiful green color.
Drizzle with lemon juice. Taste and adjust seasoning adding a pinch of salt and black pepper if necessary.
First, separate the broccoli into small similar size florets.
Saute with oil for 2 minutes. This will cook the garlic ginger and coat the broccoli with oil.
Cover the pan and steam for just 4 minutes. Covering helps soften the tough stalks, which will get kids eating the whole broccoli not just the tops!
Dry excess moisture, check tenderness, and season for the last 2 minutes.
