Broccoli With Garlic and White Wine

While looking for something different to do with broccoli this Thanksgiving, I came across this recipe from Mario Batali. The original recipe uses lemon AND orange zest. Because I am not a big fan of "orange" flavors in recipes, I decided to try this with just the lemon.


  1. In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil and garlic until just sizzling.
  2. Add the broccoli and cook, tossing regularly for 8 to 10 minutes, until the stem is tender.
  3. Use the wine to slow the cooking down if the garlic begins to brown.
  4. When the broccoli is tender, add the chile flakes and zest and place on a platter.

What a nice change from "steamed" broccoli! We loved this. The flavors are really nice. Used about 1/8 cup of wine. I used flowerettes instead of spears. Thanks for posting this!
