1 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 cup water
salt to taste
Cut the tops off broccoli and break into 1 1/2-inch florets.
Heat the oil over medium-high heat in a 12-inch skillet. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes; cook 15 to 30 seconds, stirring until fragrant.
Add the broccoli to the skillet and cook, stirring, for a minute. Stir in the water, cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes until the broccoli is tender and the water has evaporated. Season with the salt before serving.
