Serves: to serve 4

Prep Time: 5 Minutes

Cook Time: 20 Minutes

Ready In: 25 mins

1 lb - broccoli rabé or tender stem broccoli (broccolini)

5 tablespoons - virgin olive oil

2 cloves - garlic

  - salt and pepper

1 tablespoon - Parmesan cheese

  1. Wash the broccoli, trim the stems and then cut an X in the bottom of the stems (this helps them to cook thoroughly). Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and add the broccoli. Cook until tender but still firm (about 5 minutes for rabé or 10 minutes for tender stem broccoli). Drain.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium heat. Peel and crush (mince) the garlic and sauté it for 1 to 2 minutes in the oil. Stir in the broccoli and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Place the broccoli in a serving dish and add a little freshly-ground black pepper. Dust with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.
