I am always trying new ways to make broccoli in hopes that my kids will eat it. I decided to try sautéing the broccoli in a skillet then adding a bit of fresh garlic, toasted pine nuts, and asiago cheese. It was awesome! My daughter didn’t care for the cheese but my son thought it was pretty good. I really loved the garlic flavor on the broccoli along with the tasty nuts and salty cheese. It was super simple to make and tasted really great.Broccoli with Garlic, Pine Nuts, and Asiago Cheese: Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 clove of garlic, minced
- Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
- Dash of crushed red pepper
- 1-2 tbsp of pine nuts, toasted*
- 1 tbsp asiago cheese, grated
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the broccoli florets and cook, stirring often, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Add the minced garlic, and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and place in a serving bowl. Add the toasted pine nuts and asiago cheese. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
*To toast the pine nuts, simply put them in a DRY skillet (no oil needed). Cook on low for a few minutes, stirring often, until they start to get golden brown.
