Who doesn’t enjoy cheese covered broccoli? This recipe explains how to par-boil broccoli to get even cooking, and then toss it into a hot pan to get a tasty roasted flavor. Simple and delectable!
Sautéed Broccoli with Garlic and Cheese
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 head broccoli cut into small florets
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp garlic minced
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- 2-3 slices provolone cheese
- 2 tbsp pine nuts toasted
- Bring to a boil a pot of water with 1 tsp of salt. Drop the broccoli into the water and cook for 1 minute. Strain the broccoli straight into a hot sauté pan. Move the broccoli around the pan for 5 minutes, until you can see no water in the pan and little steam is coming off the broccoli. We want the broccoli to be dry. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil into the pan. Cook for 2 minutes. Add garlic and black pepper along with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Cook for 1 minute then transfer into an oven safe casserole dish.
- Layer the broccoli with provolone cheese. Place into oven at 300°F, just until the cheese is melted. Top with pine nuts and serve!
