Lemon-Garlic Broccoli

My kids seem to eat more veggies when they have lemon or vinegar on them, my husband does too. I decided to quickly steam some broccoli until it was crisp-tender then sautéed it with crushed red pepper flakes, minced garlic, olive oil, and lemon juice. It was tangy and garlicky with a bit of a kick and we all loved it.

In a steamer set over boiling water steam broccoli, covered, until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Heat the olive oil in a small sauté pan then add the crushed red pepper flakes and minced garlic, cook, stirring constantly for 1 minutes. Add the lemon juice and steamed broccoli. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper; toss to coat evenly. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
