This recipe is very Italian. It reminds me of the kind of vegetables I ate growing up: Covered in garlic. The olives are a welcomed, meaty bite with the broccoli. And it’s so easy it comes together in only 10 minutes. This just might save the reputation of Italian-Americans.
- 3 cloves of garlic, diced
- 1/2 yellow onion, diced
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1lb steamed broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
- 1/4 cup finely chopped black olives
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
Over medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic in the oil for 2-3 minutes until the onions start to turn color.
Add in the broccoli and lower the heat. Toss the pan to make sure the broccoli soaks up the oil.
Add in the olives and distribute evenly throughout the dish. Serve hot.
My favorite part about this is how much flavor gets soaked into the broccoli. It completely loses that off-putting “green” flavor and is filled up with onion, garlic, and olives. If this recipe were a person, it would be way too good for Snooki.
