Ingredients

  • 2 pounds broccolini, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • Salt, to taste
  • Chef notes

    This is the perfect veggie side dish. It's healthy, light, flavorful and goes well with just about anything.

    Technique tip: Blanching the broccolini locks in the bright green color and cooks them to a perfect al dente.

    Swap option: Use regular broccoli or even green beans in place of broccolini.

    Preparation

    1.

    Fill a large saucepan with water, add a good pinch of salt and bring to a boil.

    2.

    Then drop in your broccolini and boil for exactly 2 minutes, drain and set aside.

    3.

    In a large skillet, add the oil, garlic and chili flakes and sauté over medium heat until the garlic starts to lightly brown. Add the broccolini, add a final touch of salt and cook everything together just for a couple of minutes (but not too long or the broccolini loses its color and crunch).
