In a large skillet, over medium heat, add olive oil and garlic. Cook these for a minute, then add the broccoli florets. Pro tip - Make sure the florets are in a single layer so they cook evenly.
Season with salt and black pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of water, cover the skillet and cook on low for 3 to 4 minutes. Pro tip - Covering the pan will keep the stem inside which helps soften the stalk making them tender.
Check to ensure the stalks (stems) are tender. If not, cook uncovered for another 2 minutes. Add the cranberries and pine nuts (or other nuts).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.
