Article Excerpt:

This recipe is one of those quick and easy recipes that doesn't really even require a recipe.  It is one of my standby I-don't-feel-like-cooking things to make.  It takes about 5 minutes, and there aren't really any measurements.  

The basic idea?  Steamed broccoli with caramelly, crispy slices of garlic and a drizzle of olive oil.  About as simple as it gets - but always a winner.  Make as much as you want to feed yourself or to feed a crowd. Love garlic?  Add a bunch.  Only like garlic?  Keep it minimal.  I like it really garlicky, so I usually use 2-3 big cloves for about 1 1/2 cups of broccoli.  The trick is to make sure your garlic is just slightly crisp, but not burnt.  keep your heat low, and remove the pan from the flame when the edges just start to turn golden.
