    Sicilian-Style Broccoli

    Capers and garlic add real Sicilian flavor to sauteed broccoli.


    • 1 bunch broccoli (1 1/4 pounds)
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 talespoons capers, rinsed
    • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
    • 1/2 cup water
    • salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste


    Step 1
    Cut off and separate broccoli florets. Trim the tough ends of the stalks; peel the stalks if desired and cut crosswise into 3/8-inch-thick slices.
    Step 2
    Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add capers and garlic and cook, stirring, until the garlic is golden, about 1 minute. 
    Step 3
    Add the broccoli florets and stalks and water; bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the broccoli is tender, about 5 minutes. 
    Step 4
    Uncover, increase the heat to high and cook, stirring, until any remaining water evaporates, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper.
