Fresh laurel’s sweet fragrance lends a simple and elegant touch to steamed broccoli.
- Choose a nice round head of broccoli without much stem. Rinse thoroughly and trim stem. Hollow out the thick bottom stem with a sharp paring knife.
- Place water, laurel leaves, butter, salt, and pepper in a stainless steel or copper pot that is just larger than broccoli. Put broccoli in pot, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and steam until crisp-tender, 8-10 minutes. Remove broccoli to a serving platter; cover to keep warm.
- Pour a little of remaining liquid into a small bowl and mix with cornstarch; return to pot and boil until mixture thickens slightly. Cut broccoli into spears and drizzle with sauce; serve immediately.
