Broccolini with burnt garlic


This is a lovely side dish. It is garlicky. It is spicy. It looks fabulous!


broccolini (1 bunch), garlic (2 cloves), red chilli (1), olive oil (1 tablespoon), salt

What to do:

  1. Into a frying pan heat olive oil over low heat, add sliced garlic and chilli and cook until garlic is nicely brown. Transfer them onto a paper towel to drain.
  2. Add broccolini into the above garlic and chilli infused olive oil. Fry for 1-2 minutes over medium heat. Then add 1 table spoon of water, season with salt. Reduce heat and cover with a lid let it cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  3. Transfer the cooked broccolini into a plate and garnish with burnt garlic and chilli.
  4. Serve as a side dish.

Note: don’t skip the cover with a lid step, that is how you infuse flavour into broccolini.
