i usually fill up a huge mixing bowl with broccoli, add about 1/4 cup of water, cover it and microwave for about 15 minutes, stirring halfway through. It comes out nice and soft.

I bought a steaming basket for about $2.00 at the grocery store. Just add water to your pot, veggies in the basket, close the top and turn on the heat.

This is the easiest way. And you can reuse the water for another veggie of choice.

Or I guess you could drink it???
