Broccoli Sauteed in Wine and Garlic

Broccoli is one of the best vegetables out there because it is so versatile it will match well with almost any main dish. It's filling enough to have as a meal too if you dare. This recipe is fast and easy, just be sure the broccoli is fresh and not frozen because you'll not get the same delicious flavors from the frozen product.


6 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 pounds broccoli, cut into spears
1 cup Frascati or other dry white wine
1 TBSP hot red pepper flakes
Grated zest of 1 lemon
Grated zest of 1 orange


In a 10-12 in saute pan, heat the olive oil with the garlic over medium-high heat until just sizzling. Add the broccoli and cook, tossing frequently and gradually adding the wine to keep the garlic from browning until the stalks are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add the red pepper flakes and zests, and tossing well, serve immediately.
