A nice change from the usual boiled or steamed.
Spicy Pan-Seared Broccoli
1 teaspoon butter
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 medium head broccoli, cut into bite size florets
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (or more to taste)
Parmesan cheese, grated
Heat butter and oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic, broccoli and red pepper flakes, tossing to coat. Cook until broccoli is brilliant green and slightly softened, but still tender-crisp, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle grated parmesan over top, toss once more and transfer to serving dish.
Estimated time, 10 minutes, including cutting and dicing.
COOKS NOTES – The stems of the broccoli can also be included, just peel, slice it and toss it in with the florets.
