Broccoli with Toasted Garlic and Orange

olive oil

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
Heat the 1 tablespoon olive oil and 2 heaping tablespoons minced garlic in same skillet over LOW heat until garlic is toasted, about 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in red pepper. Transfer to small bowl, leaving oil in skillet.

1/4 cup water
Use 1 medium head broccoli (or 1 pound broccoli crowns). Cut off the broccoli stalk very close to florets. Trim the "skin" off the broccoli stems and cut them up into small pieces. Cut or break florets into small pieces. This should yield about 8 cups.

Over HIGH heat, toss broccoli and water in skillet.
Cover and let steam/saute for about 8 minutes (or less - check it after 6 minutes), stirring occasionally.

1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
zest from an orange or lemon

(toasted sesame seeds)
Add oyster sauce and orange zest.
Stir in toasted garlic.

Serve topped with toasted sesame seeds if you desire.
