Choppin’ Broccoli

February 11, 2010

Chopped and Scorched

Whenever I cook broccoli Michael always hollers “Choppin’ broccoli!” I’ve come to expect it. In a way it’s kind of irritating, but I would miss it if he didn’t say it, you know? You don’t really need a recipe for this, but here goes. Begin by choppin’ broccoli.

Serves 2

3 stalks of broccoli, chopped

2 small onions, chopped

1 tablespoon coconut oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon chili flakes, optional

Heat coconut oil in a wok or large pan over high until a few whisps of smoke begin to rise. Add onions to hot oil, they’ll snap and crackle. Add the broccoli a moment later and toss with onions. Cook for several minutes, tossing and turning almost continuously. There will be dark, blackened bits sticking to the pan. If it sticks too much, carefully add a splash of water. Add the garlic, turn down the heat a bit, and then sprinkle with the sea salt and chili flakes, if using. There, that’s it! Kind of easy except for cleaning the pan afterwards.
