Broccoli with Pine Nuts

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.
