Broccoli alle Olive

I've had this recipe on the back burner for a while, feeling it may be a bit too simple to be worth sharing but honestly it's so delicious that I had to.

This is how my paternal grandmother used to make broccoli. All you need is really a handful of ingredients:

Broccoli 1, cut into florets

Black olives 20, pitted

Garlic 2 cloves, minced

Pine nuts 1 tbsp

Red chillies 2, chopped finely

Olive oil 2 tbsp

Vinegar 1 tbsp

Salt to taste

Heat the oil and fry the garlic. Add the broccoli, salt, chillies and cook, lid on, until the florets are almost fork-tender.

Add the vinegar, increase the heat for 30 second to let it evaporate. Lower the flame again and add the olives and pine nuts. Cook until the broccoli are fully done.

Serve hot or at room temperature as a side dish, or use as a condiment for pasta.

Hope you like it!
