Broccoli with Toasted Garlic Olive Oil

From Jeanette's Healthy Living

1 head broccoli, cut into florets

Toasted Garlic Olive Oil

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 cloves garlic, sliced

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

salt and pepper, to taste


Blanch broccoli in boiling water for 2-3 minutes, until broccoli turns bright green (it should still have some crunch).

Drain broccoli and rinse well with cold water to stop the cooking process.

To make Toasted Garlic Olive Oil, heat olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in a small skillet. Cook about 2 minutes, until garlic is lightly browned.

Toss broccoli with some of the Toasted Garlic Olive Oil and season to taste with salt and pepper.
