Baby Broccoli with Garlic

A cross between broccoli and Chinese kale, baby broccoli has a sweeter flavor than ordinary broccoli. Serve this dish alongside our crown roast of pork (see related recipe at left).

Ingredients:

  • Salt, to taste
  • 5 bunches baby broccoli, ends trimmed
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced

Directions:

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the baby broccoli and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the broccoli to a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking. Drain and pat dry.

In a large copper gratin pan or large sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm the olive oil until almost smoking. Reduce the heat to medium, add the garlic and cook until just lightly browned. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to a plate.

Increase the heat to high, add the broccoli to the pan in batches and sauté until tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Season with salt. Return all the broccoli to the pan and top with the garlic slices. Serve immediately. Serves 12 to 15.
