Italian-Style Sautéed Broccoli
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
2 or 3 garlic cloves, minced
1 onion, diced
4 or 5 button mushrooms, brushed clean and thinly sliced
1 or 2 tomatoes, diced
1 head broccoli, cut into small flowerets, with stems peeled and thinly
Bring a large pot of water to boil over high heat. Add broccoli and cook
until bright green but not completely tender, about 3 minutes. Plunge into
cold water to stop the cooking process and preserve the bright color.
Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, and cook,
stirring, 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes and stir well. Cover and simmer 10-15
minutes. Remove cover and stir in broccoli. Simmer, uncovered, 2-3 minutes.
Serve hot, makes 4 servings.
