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