Yield: 2 servings
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large bunch broccolini, rinsed
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 large garlic clove, minced
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
¼ cup of water
Add olive oil to a medium sauté pan and place over high heat. Heat until oil shimmers, approximately 1 minute.
Carefully add the broccolini to the sauté pan using tongs.
Season with salt and pepper and cook, rotating every 15 seconds with tongs, until slightly charred, approximately 2 minutes.
Add the garlic and red pepper flakes and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, approximately 1 minute.
Add ¼ cup of water and cover the sauté pan with a lid. Let cook, undisturbed, until the water evaporates, approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
