I was determined to finish Louie’s garden veggies before B and I left for our fourth of July Croghan trip. So I popped my head into the fridge and voila! Broccoli!

This is another healthy eat for those who are always on the run, and again, this was one of my non-thinking Manila recipes. The slight acerbic taste and the broccoli’s vivid green refreshes and awakens one’s senses after a stressful day of toiling.

This recipe serves one.

Ingredients:
1 cup of broccoli
5 cloves of chopped garlic
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 cup of shredded low fat cheese

Pour the olive oil into a pan. Add the garlic and saute until it’s light brown. Toss in the broccoli and watch it turn a vivid green! Saute for two to three minutes, then transfer the dish to a bowl. Sprinkle the cheese on top and there you have it. A low calorie meal which you can eat guilt-free as you plop down in front of the TV.
