Recipe: Olive Broccoli
1 head broccoli
1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
juice and grated zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup oil-cured olives, pitted and minced
1 red bell pepper, roasted over an open flame, peeled, seeded and diced
Split broccoli lengthwise into spears, trimming off any coarse stems and
leaves. Bring a small amount of water to a boil over high heat. Add
broccoli and steam until bright green and crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
Drain and transfer to a bowl. Immediately drizzle lightly with oil and toss
gently. Stir in lemon juice and zest, bell pepper, and minced olives and
turn the ingredients gently to combine. Arrange on a platter and serve
