Microwave Garlic Broccoli

Microwave Garlic Broccoli

Garlic Broccoli is one of my favorite recipes. It is so simple to put together and tastes very good. No need to mention that this preparation is healthy too. I make it often as a side dish whenever I make burger or sandwich. You can also have it as a simple salad if you are on diet. I just make it very easily in the microwave. It is perfect to make for lunch boxes too.


  • Broccoli – 1 crown
  • Butter/Olive Oil -1 tbsp
  • Garlic – 1/2 tsp (minced or use garlic powder)
  • Red Pepper Flakes – 1/4 tsp
  • Salt – to taste


  1. Cut the broccoli crown into medium sized florets. Rinse the florets.
  2. Put in into a ceramic or glass container. Mix in the olive oil, minced garlic, red pepper flakes and salt.
  3. Microwave on high power for 2-3 minutes. The florets will turn dark green in color. It should retain its crispiness for best taste.
Indian Chef
I'm a food blogger, food photographer and organic gardener based out of India. I enjoy cooking for my family using fresh produce from my vegetable garden. I love to try out various cuisines and perfect my cooking skills. I've always loved writing, so writing is something that I've always done. Food, on the other hand was something I definitely grew into. As a kid, I was the pickiest eater you could imagine. But eventually food started tasting good to me and it became something that I associate deeply with happy memories. My food blog Indian Food Pedia is a humble attempt at sharing my passion for all things food and you will definitely find a lot of Andhra flavor in this space, home-cooked meals I prepare for my family using farm fresh produce from my organic garden and our nearest farmer’s market. I have no formal training in food photography. Taking images of food is a learning process, a creative outlet for me and an enjoyable one at that.
