DIRECTIONS

  • In a small dry skillet, toast the pine nuts, stirring constantly to brown evenly. Don't burn!
  • Chop the garlic fine. Set aside.
  • Separate the broccoli into florets. Peel the skinnier stems and cut into cubes (or reserve the stems for cream of broccoli soup).
  • In a large pot of rapidly boiling salted water, blanch the broccoli for about 8 minutes, until it is crisp-tender and still bright green.
  • Drain thoroughly in a colander.
  • In a sauté pan, heat the olive oil. Add the garlic and let it soften for a few minutes. Be careful not to let it burn.
  • Then add the broccoli and pine nuts to the pan. Toss carefully to coat everything well with the garlicky oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Turn into a warmed serving bowl and serve at once. Enjoy!
