All microwaves cook differently even if they are of the same size and wattage. You might need to adjust your cooking time. After you cooked your first batch, you’ll know what time is best for your specific microwave and personal taste.
2cups(180g)broccoli florets, cut into bite sized pieces
In a microwave safe bowl, combine the broccoli, water and salt.
Cover with a microwave safe lid or plate and Microwave on High for 4 minutes. Stir and test doneness. If needed, cover again and continue microwaving for 15 second intervals or until cooked to your preference.
Season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Add any additional optional finishes such as lemon juice, a drizzle of olive oil, or butter.
Refer to Your Microwave Manual for Safety & Cooking GuidelinesGeneral microwave cooking time notes:

Microwave Safe Containers & Lids
Microwave safe glass (particularly borosilicate glass) & ceramic containers are the recommended choice. *Do not use cracked or otherwise damaged containers.
Never use plastics (containers, bags, wrap, etc.) that are not labeled microwave safe. Never use styrofoam, metal, or aluminum foil.
Lids - microwave safe glass, ceramic or silicone is best. A microwave safe plate works great as a lid. Parchment paper, wax paper, or paper towels work fine, but may not hold the steam in as much (many recipes benefits from the steam retention). Microwave safe plastic lids are considered acceptable. Usually we prefer to use a lid from glass, ceramic, or silicone and just use the microwave safe plastic lids that come with the containers for storing.
