Instead of the same old boiled broccoli, try a slow saute. A kick of garlic and pancetta brings this healthy green back to life. With 1 cup (250 mL) cooked broccoli serving up more vitamin C than a glass of orange juice, there's no more delicious way to boost immunity.

Trim tough stalks from broccoli; cut into 4-inch (10 cm) spears. Set aside.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-low heat; cook pancetta, garlic and hot pepper flakes, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until garlic is golden and pancetta is crisp.

Stir in broccoli and œ cup (50 mL) water; cover and cook for about 8 minutes or until tender-crisp.
