  • 4 cups broccoli , cut in largish pieces
  • 1 red bell pepper , de-cored and de-seeded, cut in strips
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil (or oil of choice)
  • 2 Tbsp garlic , minced (about 4 large cloves)
  • salt to taste
  • ½ tsp black pepper , more to taste


  • Preheat large skillet on medium (I love using cast iron, but not necessary here).
  • Add oil, garlic, bell pepper, broccoli, salt, and black pepper and stir.
  • Cover and cook on medium for 3 minutes.
  • Uncover, stir, and cook about 2 minutes more or until broccoli is just softening. Don't overcook. Broccoli is best when still a bit crunchy but starting to soften. Cook longer according to your preference.
