Broccoli with Pine Nuts
1 small bunch broccoli
Nonstick cooking spray, preferably olive-oil spray
1-1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 small clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
Cut broccoli into florets, reserving stems for another use. Place florets in a large microwaveable casserole. Add 1/4 cup water, cover and cook on high power for 3 to 4 minutes, or until broccoli is tender-crisp and bright green. Drain.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add oil.
Turn burner to medium high; when oil is hot, swirl pan to coat with oil. Stir in garlic; immediately add drained broccoli.
Cook, stirring constantly, 2 minutes.
Transfer to serving bowl; sprinkle with toasted pine nuts.
Note: To toast pine nuts, heat dry skillet over medium-high heat. Add pine nuts and cook, stirring frequently, until nuts begin to brown. Remove from pan immediately, or they will burn.
