Summer is here, and with it lots of colorful and delicious vegetables to enhance health. My friend Ben, who has a medical degree from Yale, has his finger on the pulse of the latest research regarding many aspects of health. A few days ago he sent me a study on broccoli and how it can be healing and preventative for cancer in some cases. Broccoli is not my favorite, but this Fourth of July weekend I added some to my overflowing bags from the local roadside stand. Here is how I cooked it and it was, in my and my family’s opinion, delicious.
Stir Fry Broccoli
One or two heads of broccoli crowns (without the stalks)
Cover the bottom of a frying pan with olive oil and several garlic cloves (diced)
Simmer and add broccoli with a generous amount of soy sauce.
Cover pan and cook until tender but still firm.
P.S. This is my basic recipe for all greens.
