Broccoli with Garlic
There's another Recipe Round-up on the horizon. The Accidental Pastor's Wife is our hostess and the date is set for Tuesday, March 18th. Side dishes is the category and I've been sorting through my recipe files for some of our favorites. Here is one that needs to be taken out and dusted off. It is a winner!
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon olive oil
2 medium heads broccoli, stems peeled and sliced, flowerets separated into 1 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 tablespoons water
In a deep 12 inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and salt; cook 4 minutes, tossing vegetables to coat well. Add garlic and remaining 1 teaspoon olive oil. Cook 1 minute longer, stirring. Add 3 tablespoons water; cook broccoli 2 minutes longer to till tender crisp.
