So I am back to making my one new recipe a week and since we have so much going on right now with trying to get settled into the new place I am only trying new side dishes. Last night's was a big hit -Broccoli Sauteed in Wine and Garlic. This recipe was courtesy of Fitness magazine and Mario Batali. It was quick and east - took me about 5 minutes to prep and less than 15 minutes to make. It has so much flavor that you almost forgot you were eating a vegetable.
Here's the recipe (serves 6):
6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 pound broccoli, cut into spears, lengthwise
6 ounces Frascati or other dry white wine
1 tablespoon red chile flakes
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 orange
In a 12 to 14-inch saute pan, heat the olive oil and garlic until just sizzling. Add the broccoli and cook, tossing regularly for 8 to 10 minutes, until the stem is tender. Use the wine to slow the cooking down if the garlic begins to brown. When the broccoli is tender, add the chile flakes and zests and place on a platter.
