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.
