wash brocolli (or however you spell it) and break off pc no shorter than 2 " and no longer than 3", and no thicker stalk than a crayon...(else slice it) toss into wok generously oiled with EVOO and warmed, bring heat up carefully to hot , then turn down low and add chopped garlic and onion....keep tossing about with wooden utensils, stirfry style......in a few min. add tamari, agave nectar...(can cover or not)..in a couple more, add few sprinkles of lemon juice and dust with cayenne, toss, check for tenderness....and eat!! Its so yum.

Thanks Jayney, sounds really lovely...I've got a giant head of organic broccoli just arrived!! And a similar pineapple. You've given me an idea...

....toss in some pineapple juice, (and pineapple chunks for ABs) and red onion chunky wedges making it even more beneficial for moi. And even, some might say, retro Cantonese ala 1970s.

eh

Broccoli is absolutely delicious if u add avocado, garlic and
olive oil to it and mix it all up once it's cooked !!!
:P ;D ;) :)
I used to eat it so often pre-BTD; I've since learned that avocado is an avoid for B's ...  much to my chagrin  :-/ ::) :'( >:( :(

you can marinate it in anything: a bit of oil, some citrus or vinegar (if you can have vinegar), or pineapple juice sounds good, too, some garlic (freshly pressed). The old way I used to marinate (pre-BTD) was 1 part soy sauce, 1 part evoo, 1 part balsamic vinegar, and a big glob of pressed garlic. Now I would replace the balsamic with lemon/lime/grapefruit juice.

Some great ideas...  

I enjoy fresh broccoli so much that I never take the time to cook it!

Avocados - Just when my tree starts to produce well, I shouldn't eat them anymore...  Oh well, my wife and daughter get them all!  Still saves on the grocery bill :-)
