Place washed and trimmed broccoli florets into microwave-safe dish with water.
Cover your dish with a fitted lid, or set a plate over the top of your broccoli. Microwave on high for 2 ½ minutes, then stir and check for doneness. Continue cooking in 1-minute increments until the broccoli reaches your desired level of tenderness.
Remove from your microwave when done. Toss with optional butter and seasoning then serve immediately.
