Sauteed Broccoli with Garlic Dip

Standard

I can’t believe all my life I haven’t been eating broccoli, because I hated it! But now I am. Rob is so happy that I’ve been making it on a pretty regular basis!

Last week, I made Blackened Pork Chops and served them with a side of Sauteed Broccoli. Roasted Broccoli is my go-to; but when something is already in the oven, I feel like I need to cook the side on the stove for timing’s sake!

About a month or so ago, I replicated the broccoli portion of this recipe. Last week, I decided to change it up a bit so that I could use up some of my garlic dip.

Writing this post is purely selfish, so I can save the method to my recipe arsenal!

Sauteed Broccoli

(Serves 2 – 3)

Ingredients:

  • 1 head broccoli, washed and cut into medium florets
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp Garlic Dip
  • 1 cup stock or broth
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Shredded Parmesan

Method:

  • Heat oil in a large pan sprayed with olive oil.
  • Add broccoli and saute for 2 minutes stirring constantly.
  • Add garlic dip and saute for 2 more minutes, stirring constantly to distribute evenly.
  • Add 1 cup stock and continue to saute over medium heat until broccoli is tender and most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. (About 10 more minutes.)
  • Season broccoli with salt and pepper.
  • Top with shredded parmesan and serve immediately.

Note: Alternatively, you can omit the garlic dip or just serve it on the side for dipping!

Next challenge: I’m going to try steaming broccoli with this method.

What is your favorite broccoli preparation?

  1. I am pretty sure I told you this already, but the only veggies I ate growing up were cucumber and carrots – i.e. no cooked veggies for me! Turns out my Mom overcooked them all, so I didn’t even try cooked veggies until well into my 30s!
