Brocolli in Garlic and Olive Oil

This one is a great side dish and very very easy to make. Aside from the brocolli, this involves 4 ingredients only...garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. The ingredients will bring out the natural flavor of the vegetable.

I served this last night together with the tempura.

Here's the recipe;


1 medium head brocolli, cut and sliced in florettes
5 cloves garlic
5 tbsps olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Wash the brocolli thoroughly. I've got a tip from my mom that to make sure that the vegetables will be bug-free, you can soak the vegetable in water with a tablespoon of vinegar for 10 minutes. After that, wash again with running water.
2. Cut the brocolli in small florettes.

3. Heat the pan, add the olive oil and garlic.
4. Add the brocolli, stir fry until you reach the desired doneness of the vegetable. I like mine to be half cooked.

5. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve hot!!!
