  • Broccoli, cleaned, trimmed 2-4 cups
  1. Bring a few quarts of water to boil in a large pot.
  2. Add broccoli to pot, wait until water returns to a boil. After water boils for 10 to 15 seconds, drain broccoli and toss broccoli into a large bowl of ice-cold water.
  3. When broccoli is thoroughly cooled, drain and spin-dry if desired. The cooled broccoli can hold for quite a while before finishing.
  • Olive oil 2 tbsp
  • Ginger, fresh, minced 1/2 tsp
  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium temp, then saute ginger for a minute or so.
  2. Put broccoli in skillet, stirring to expose all of the broccoli to the heated oil.
  • Salt, pepper to taste
  1. Season with salt/pepper. Continue to stir broccoli until heated to serving temp, then serve.
This simple dish is excellent with pan-seared halibut and garbonzo bean puree.
