After you toast the garlic in the EVOO, you take it out and set aside. Then you toss in the broccoli and toss it with the EVOO in the skillet that has been infused with the garlic. The broccoli takes on the garlic flavor which is truly the star of this dish.
If you want to try something a bit different from the usual steamed broccoli, this is a good one to give a try. It's actually a bit faster than steaming and it tastes so much better. This side dish is even nice enough to serve to guests, so mark it to try soon.
