STIR-FRIED BROCCOLI WITH GARLIC AND HERBS


Simple stir-fried broccoli with the flavours of garlic and herbs is a perfect side dish to be served with grilled meats or sea food. To retain the fresh green colour just add a tiny pinch of baking soda to the water along with the salt while parboiling it. Take care to keep it crunchy and not overcook the broccoli.

Ingredients:
Broccoli ...... 250 gms
Garlic ......... 1 tbsp (crushed)
Mixed herbs .... 1 tsp
Spring onion .... 1 bulb with greens (optional)
Salt ................... to taste
Black pepper .... 1/8 tsp (freshly crushed)
Olive oil ........... 1 tbsp

Method:

Boil the broccoli florets with little salt and a pinch of baking soda just for one or two boils. Drain the water and immerse it in cold water. Set aside.





In a pan add olive oil or any cooking oil. Saute the garlic to a light brown colour.






Tip in the broccoli florets. Season with salt, pepper, herbs and finely chopped spring onion. Stir it a couple of times and it is ready to serve.

  2. Shobha - It's great to see all these new European recipes on your blog. Recently a friend of mine served khichedi topped with stir fried broccoli with garlic and it made a delicious combination.
