ingredients

  • 2 heads broccoli, trimmed into florets and steamed for 4 to 5 minutes

      recipe tools

      Directions

      Divide the cooked broccoli into 2 serving bowls.

      In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegar, brown sugar, and chili flakes until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside.

      Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and lemon peel and cook briefly until beginning to turn golden brown, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Add the vinegar mixture and salt and simmer 2 minutes longer.

      Pour dressing over half the broccoli florets and serve immediately.

      Hot Lemon Garlic Oil:
      1/4 cup olive oil
      2 cloves garlic, smashed and thinly sliced
      2 long, wide strips lemon peel
      1 lemon, juiced
      Salt and about 10 grinds freshly ground pepper
      Heat the olive oil, garlic, and lemon peel over medium heat and let sizzle gently for a few minutes until garlic is lightly browned. Add lemon juice, salt, and pepper and heat for another minute. Pour dressing over half the broccoli florets and serve immediately.
