The perfect way to steam broccoli so it doesn't turn out too crunchy or soggy and bland.
||Cut fresh broccoli or purchase prepackaged florets. Place in your steamer basket and set aside.
||Bring about an inch of water to boil in your pan (not enough to actually touch the broccoli).
||When the water begins to boil, immediately insert the steamer basket and place a lid over it. Allow to steam for exactly 7 minutes and remove immediately.
||Serve while hot!
||Note: the real secret to perfectly steamed broccoli is to not insert the steamer basket until the water is already at a hard boil, and to time it for exactly 7 minutes.
