Italian Broccoli with Tomatoes

This side dish is both low in fat and calories, but certainly not taste! It makes a great addition to many pasta dishes or grilled chicken.
  • 4 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 medium-ripe tomatoes, cut in wedges
  • 1/2 cup shredded part skim mozzarella cheese

Wash and cut broccoli into 1/2-inch pieces, if using fresh broccoli.

Place broccoli and water in a shallow microwave dish. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring twice. They are finished when tender.

Drain the broccoli. Stir in spices and tomato wedges. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cover. Microwave to melt cheese. Let stand for a few minutes before serving.

  • Yields: 6-8 servings
