Garlic Sautéed Broccolini Recipe

First step it to heat a skillet on medium heat with the oil. Peel a clove of garlic and crush it through a garlic press or mince it very finely. Prepare the broccolini by washing it thoroughly and then slicing the ends off. If they are larger pieces, they can be sliced in half lengthwise.

Add the garlic to the hot oil and stir it around in the oil until the garlic is fragrant, just a moment or two, then stir in the prepared broccolini until it has been coated evenly with the garlic and oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Continue to sauté in the hot skillet for about 5 minutes, until the broccolini is vibrant in colour and has some dark roasted marks.

Serve hot and enjoy!
