Italian Fried Broccoli

This was a wonderful accident!  Sick of steamed broccoli, I decided to try and fry it, similar to how you cook asparagus and it was amazing.

Italian Fried Broccoli

1 head of Broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Roma Tomatoes, diced
2 Tbsp. Kalamata Olives, diced
2 Tbsp. Water
Freshly ground pepper to taste
Italian seasoning to taste

In a small frying pan, heat up oil.  Place broccoli, tomatoes, and olives in pan.  Fry on medium heat for 3 minutes.  Add water and seasonings to taste.  Cover for about 5 minutes or until broccoli is tender.  Remove lid and turn up the heat to a medium-high heat.  Fry for 5 more minutes stirring frequently.  Makes a great side dish.  Yields:  2 servings.
