Cut the big stem(s) off the brocolli, but leave a couple of inches of stem.
Then cut the brocolli into thin spears, about three or four inches long and 1/2 inch wide.
Place in a single layer on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle with salt, ginger root sliced into thin rounds (say 1/4 cup), and two large garlic cloves sliced in thin rounds. Drizzle generously with olive oil and soy sauce.
Cook the broccoli 20-30 minutes, or until tender.
