Microwave Lemon Garlic Broccoli

Surfed around on the internet today looking for a different way to do broccoli and found this on http://www.food.com.  It was easy and delicious!

1 (14 oz) bag frozen broccoli florets or 2 heads fresh broccoli, cleaned and cut into florets

1/4 cup water

2 tablespoons olive oil (I cut it down to 1)

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed or 1 teaspoon garlic powder (I used just 1 clove as it was pretty garlicy after 1)

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)

1 teaspoon salt

1  Microwave broccoli and water in covered bowl on high for 5 – 6 minutes or til crisp tender.

2  While it is cooking, combined remaining ingredients.

3  Drain cooked broccoli.

4  Pour lemon garlic mixture over broccoli and toss to coat.

5  If using fresh garlic, cover dish and let sit for 2 minutes to allow heat to “cook” garlic.  If using garlic powder, you’re good to go!
