  • 12 oz frozen broccoli florets
  • salt adjust to taste
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder or minced garlic
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper powder adjust to your preference
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water


  • In a large skillet or frying pan, place the frozen broccoli florets.
  • Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of water and cook in medium heat for about 2 to 3 minutes until the water from the frozen florets melt.
  • Once the water is all melted, add salt, lemon juice and garlic, mix well with the broccoli.
  • Cover with lid and cook in low heat for about 4 to 5 minutes or until the broccoli is cooked and soft to your preference.
  • If there's no water left in the pan, you may sprinkle a little more water so the broccoli will be cooked without burning at the bottom of the pan.
  • Usually this is not necessary since there is enough water from the frozen florets.
  • Once it's cooked, open the lid, stir well and if there is any water content left in the pan, cook in medium heat until the water is all evaporated.
  • Once the water content is all gone, add the oil and stir fry the cooked broccoli for another 2 to 3 minutes until it's lightly browned.
  • You may add more garlic or shredded cheese or other seasonings of your preference as you desire.
  • Sprinkle black pepper powder and serve hot with rice or any meal for a delicious vegetable side dish!
