Pan-Roasted Broccolini with Garlic and Red Pepper Flakes

Charred Spicy Broccolini

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.
