Sometimes simplicity is the best. Although My hubby loved roasted veggies with their heavenly char, this garlic broccoli stir fry is one of my hubby’s favorite broccoli dishes. I make this very often.

Broccoli, as we all know, is very healthy food. It is very low in Saturated Fat and Cholesterol. It is also a good source of Protein, Vitamin E & calcium. So we must add such healthy food to our diet. Now we have a very easy and crunchy Broccoli salad.

Broccoli when sauteed with garlic and a bit of pepper and chilli in olive oil makes the stir fry really tasty. The only thing one should keep in mind while doing this kind of stir-fries is to blanch the vegetables in the right manner so that it will not lose its crunch in the process.


Broccoli – Cut into medium-sized pieces
Salt – as per taste
black pepper 1/2 tsp
Garlic – 3,4 pods finely chopped
Ginger – 1inch finely chopped
Lemon – 1/2 small
Olive oil – 2 tbsp



  1. First, wash and cut Broccoli into medium-sized pieces.
  2. Heat 2 cups of water in a pan. Add 1/4 tsp of salt.
  3. When water comes to boil, put broccoli pieces into boiling water. Boil it for 2 minutes and switch off the flame.
  4. Strain Broccoli from water.

  7. Now add salt & pepper and mix well and switch off the flame.
  8. Now squeeze 1/2 slice of lemon over it and mix well.
  9. Healthy and tangy Broccoli is ready.
  10. Serve hot.


  • You can stem broccoli in the microwave too.
  • You can add onion in the recipe.
  • You can add red chilli powder instead of black pepper in the recipe.
  • Nuts like walnuts, pine nuts can be added for extra crunch.
