Winner, winner!!! Used melted buttery margarine instead of the oil. Used my steamer basket. Will make it again!

I prepared this recipe for dinner tonight and it was delicious. Not only quick and easy but it had a delightful subtle garlic flavor. I did not use the red pepper flakes but sprinkled a little seasoning that brought out the flavors. We will be having this easy recipe again.

Blander than expected. I used the pepper flakes, but somehow it did not enhance the flavor of the broccoli. Maybe more salt, or garlic? I love broccoli, so will play around with this recipe next time.
