Broccoli with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

This simple side dish was simple to make and tasted great; definitely a flavorful way to eat your greens!

2 heads of broccoli, rinsed and cut into large florets
3 Tbl oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, chopped (I buy the kind that is already julienned; this saves time and is a lot less messy)
2 Tbl sun-dried tomato oil
juice from half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
light sprinkling of fresh Parm (optional)

Fill a large cooking pot with a few inches of water and fit with a steaming basket. Once water is boiling, place the broccoli in the basket and cover with a tight fitting lid. I like my broccoli just barely steamed, so, I only steam it for 5 or 6 minutes. Check it at this time and if you want it cooked more, continue steaming until your desired tenderness.

Remove broccoli from the pan and place in a mixing bowl. Toss broccoli with sun-dried tomatoes, sun-dried tomato oil, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle lightly with fresh Parm, if desired.  Serve and enjoy!
