Sautéed Broccolini with Slivered Garlic & Olive Oil

As much as I want a 2021 six-pack, I don’t want to shock my taste buds too much by chomping on celery sticks. 😉  This veggie side dish will blow your mind; it’s loaded with incredible flavor, without taking tons of time and without the sadness of eating celery!

If you’re not familiar with broccolini, it’s a hybrid between broccoli and Chinese broccoli. It has longer stems, a bit more structure, and is sweeter and earthier! It’s totally underrated and delish! With olive oil and garlic, veggies will be the first thing gone on your plate.

Makes: a large side dish for 2-3 people

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total time: 20 minutes

The Ingredients

2 bunches broccolini, about an inch of the stems cut off

2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1/6 teaspoon salt

Hot pepper flakes, to taste

 

 

 

The Steps

Add about a cup of water to the bottom of a medium pot. Add broccolini, cover, and let steam for 4-5 minutes until the broccolini turns bright green, al dente and has a bit of “give” when poked with a fork.

Remove broccolini from the pot with tongs, shaking off excess water (a little leftover water is okay!). Place broccolini in a separate bowl.

Dump out water from your pot and add olive oil, garlic, salt, and hot pepper flakes to taste. Heat garlic for 2 minutes over medium-low heat.

Add broccolini, using tongs to toss in garlic oil. Serve.

TIP: keep in refrigerator for up to a week, heating over medium-low heat in a pot for 5 minutes, or covered in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.
