This is a great way to add more flavorful vegetables to your diet. Other cruciferous vegetables, such as cauliflower or Brussels sprouts, can be substituted for broccoli.
In a small saucepan, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Add the broccoli to the boiling water and cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender. Drain broccoli.
In a small saute pan over medium-high, heat the oil. Add the garlic and saute for 30 seconds. Add broccoli, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Combine well and serve.
