This is one of my favorite side dishes and we eat it rather often. It is super-easy, quick and rather healthy with a small amount of cheese added. I think I got the idea years ago from Rachael Ray.
The broccoli that I used was a great find at the local farmers market. $1 a head! Great prices, fresh and local! Love it!
2 lbs of fresh or frozen broccoli cut into spears
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup asiago cheese, grated
Steam the broccoli. Set aside. Heat a large, nonstick pan to medium high heat and add olive oil. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add the broccoli and almonds and toss all together. Cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and top with the cheese. Cover with foil if needed in order to melt the cheese. Serve.
