One of the easiest ways to steam broccoli is to put the florets into somewhere between three-quarters of an inch to an inch of boiling water. There is such thing as a steamer, but if you’re trying to do this at college or on a low budget, you probably won’t have the money to buy the steamer in the heat of the moment. The easiest way, by far, is to do it on the stove - either by directly placing the cleaned florets in the water or using a steamer basket insert.
However, you can also use the microwave. You simply put wet florets in a microwave safe bowl. At this point, you need to be sure you have a large pool of water in the bottom. If not, you add a tablespoon of water to kickstart the water off the florets. Cover and steam.
