Stir-Fried Garlic Broccoli

Another recipe from Secrets Of A Skinny Chef. This one is much quicker but, it's also a side dish & by default, at least to me, side dishes are always faster to prepare.

I wish that this were a little more garlicky but, that could be part of my garlic addiction. Definitely delicious, especially for such a small calorie count.

Add the sauce and cook 1 -2 minutes longer, until a thick sauce forms.

Serve immediately.
