Pan-Roasted Broccolette with Garlic and Red Pepper Flakes
Yield: 2 servings
1 large bunch broccolette, rinsed
1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup of water
In a medium sauté pan, over high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat until shimmering.
Using tongs, carefully add the brocolette to the sauté pan.
Season with salt and pepper and cook, rotating every 15 seconds with tongs, until slightly charred, approximately 2 minutes.
Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, approximately 1 minute.
Add ¼ cup of water and cover the sauté pan with a lid. Let cook, undisturbed, until the water evaporates, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
Arrange in a neat bunches on the plate for “family-style” service, and drizzle with a little extra virgin olive oil. Enjoy!
