Blanched Broccoli In Garlic Oyster Sauce

Broccoli resembles a cauliflower.
Considered the “healthiest food on earth”,
this big-headed vegetable could be consumed raw
(like carrots, celery stalks and lettuce), the way I like them.
This prep is my “comfort recipe” each time I crave for veggie
to side my meat or as plain “aftertaste killer” for my wine.
Another quick and simple issue.
