Do you remember the sauteed green beans recipe I posted? This recipe calls for the same technique.  The broccoli will stay crunchy, yet juicy with a complex flavor as the slightly burnt parts complement the parts that are still green. Adding the grated Brazil nut on top of this dish, will help balance the slightly sour flavor of this dish, it is recommended but optional.

Ingredients:

2 cups broccoli florets

2 TBS olive oil

1-2 garlic cloves – sliced

1 TBS freshly squeezed lemon juice

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup water

2 Brazil nuts – grated

Directions:

1. Heat a large wok or a pan over medium-high heat, add the oil and the broccoli florets.

2. Saute (fry and mix occasionally) for about 3 minutes so the florets get a little brown side.

3. Add the garlic and saute for about 30 seconds, until you can smell its fragrance.

4. Mix the water, lemon juice and salt and add to the pan.

5. Saute for about 3-5 more minutes until most of the water has been evaporated.

6. Grate some Brazil nuts and serve. BTW, I use this Microplane grater, as it yields the fluffiest result.
