2 pounds broccoli
6 tablespoons crumbled feta cheese
12 kalamata olives, sliced or chopped
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 teaspoons lemon juice
4 medium cloves garlic
Sea salt and pepper to taste
1 red onion, sliced, added to steamer with broccoli stems or 2 minutes before florets
10 drops soy sauce
4 tablespoons sunflower seeds
Fill the bottom of a steamer with 2 inches of water.
While steam is building up in steamer, cut broccoli florets into quarters. Peel stems and cut into 1/4-inch pieces. Let florets and stems sit for 5 minutes to bring out their health benefits.
Chop or press garlic and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Steam stems for 2 minutes before adding the florets. Transfer to a bowl. For more flavor, toss broccoli with the remaining ingredients and any of the optional ingredients while it is still hot.
