Broccoli is a plant in the cabbage family, whose large flower head is used as a vegetable. The word broccoli, from the Italian plural of broccolo, refers to "the flowering top of a cabbage".[3] Broccoli is usually boiled or steamed, but may be eaten raw and has become popular as a raw vegetable in hors d'œuvre trays. Broccoli is classified in the Italica cultivar group of the species Brassica oleracea. Broccoli has large flower heads, usually green in color, arranged in a tree-like fashion on branches sprouting from a thick, edible stalk. The mass of flower heads is surrounded by leaves. Broccoli most closely resembles cauliflower, which is a different cultivar group of the same species. by Wikipedia.com
Ingredient and Portion
1 bunch of broccoli

1/2 cup of butter

1 tbsp of salt

1-2 cups of water
Method
Wash the broccoli until you are sure it's already clean.

Put your 1-2 cups of water in your pan along with the broccoli and 1 tbsp of salt.

Steam it until tender ( just don't over cooked it) and transfer the steamed broccoli to a clean plate using your strainer.

Place the pan again over medium-high heat, place 1/2 cup of butter into your pan, letting it spread into a circle and put your steamed broccoli, season it with pepper. Cook it until you get the right bright green color and remove it from the pan.

Serve it and enjoy!
