One bunch broccolini
1 to 2 TBSP butter or olive oil
1 to 2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 to 1/2 cup wine, water or chicken stock/broth
Salt and pepper to taste
- Wash the broccolini and just trim the bottom of the stalk a smidgen — no need to do anything else to it.
- Place it in a sauté pan with the butter and oil. Get pan hot, then add garlic broccolini and wine.
- Cover pan and cook on stovetop over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then lower heat to medium low (should still hear broccolini making some noise in the pan as it cooks) and leave it covered. Check broccolini after two minutes. If a fork can pierce the stalk, it's ready. If it is no longer bright green, it has already cooked for too long. The butter will melt into the broccolini and what's left of the wine will create a bit of a sauce.
- Remove broccolini from pan once it is ready to stop the cooking. Place broccolini on serving platter of choice. Add some salt and pepper, if desired, and drizzle the pan sauce over broccolini.
