Broccolini with Lemon and Garlic
Note: Garlic contains a chemical called allicin, which is known to have antiviral effects.

Ingredients:

1 pound broccolini or "baby broccoli"
1 tablespoon olive oil, extra virgin
2 cloves Garlic, slivered
2 tablespoons water
zest from one lemon
juice from 1 lemon
1 pinch sea salt
1 pinch pepper

Directions:
Rinse broccolini thoroughly. Cut of stem ends and peel thicker stems to get off any tough skin.

Drizzle olive oil in a large skillet. Add garlic cloves, and turn the heat to medium. When garlic begins to color and becomes fragrant add broccolini and sauté for 3 minutes.

Add water to the pan, cover and let steam for 3 minutes or until broccolini becomes crisp-tender. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Taste for seasoning and serve warm or at room temperature.
