I just read on Google News that the word "Yummy" will no longer be used unless you are trying to convince a small child to eat Broccoli. Instead, for use by adults, the word "delicious" will be used. LOL. (for real though, great instructional, great humor) Thanks ! (the word Yummy just makes me cringe though).

Nice one! I've been doing the same thing for a long time but much simpler - wash, cut off stems, add 1-2 tbsp butter, nuke, eat.

Normally I steam my broccoli for about eight minutes in a steamer but I will try this method tonight. Also, I never thought about seasoning, I'll try that too! Sometimes I sprinkle some grated cheese over the still hot broccoli, very nice!
