Printable version of this recipe.

Ingredients

1 head broccoli
2 tablespoons water
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 red bell pepper (seeded, diced)
1 yellow bell pepper (seeded, diced)
1/2 cup black olive (pitted)
1/3 cup leek (sliced, white part only)
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese (grated)

Instructions

Wash and trim the broccoli. Use the florets and about 1 inch of the stems. Cut the florets into 1-inch pieces, and the stems into 1/2-inch slices. In a 10-inch round microwavable baking dish or glass pie plate, arrange the florets in the center with the stems around the outside. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp water. Cover tightly with vented plastic wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes, or until very crisp. Let stand, covered for 3 minutes.

Uncover and drizzle with oil. Sprinkle the pepper, leeks, and thyme over the top. Re-cover with vented plastic wrap and microwave on high for 1 minute. Let stand, covered, for 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
