  • 1 head broccoli, (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Cut stalks off the broccoli, and peel coarse skin using vegetable peeler. Chop stalks into 1/2-inch pieces, and set aside in a small bowl. Chop florets into 1/2-inch pieces, and set aside in another small bowl.

  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Add chopped broccoli stalks and 1/4 cup water. Cook until stalks soften, about 3 minutes, adding more water if pan gets dry. Add chopped florets, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and bright green, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and serve hot.

    This is a very tasty way to get lots of veggies! I love adding onion to my greens; makes everything more flavorful without adding any yucky stuff.

    I didn't have olive oil so I used some Kraft Zesty Italian salad dressing instead. Was delicious! All I kept think though, was this would be excellent with bacon in it! Mushrooms would be great too! Mmm.

    My mom's always made something like this over pasta with lots of parmigiano or romano cheese over it, and a healthy dose of olive oil. it's delicious!
