How to Steam Broccoli in the Microwave
Steam broccoli for a delicious side dish in just 5 minutes! Depening on how many watts your microwave is, cook time may vary.
- 1 large head of broccoli in small florets

Cut up broccoli into small florets and peel the stalks and cut into small circles.
Place broccoli and water into a large microwave safe bowl and cover with a plate or microwave safe lid.
