Sicilian Broccoli – Forget What You Know About Wheat(c)

2 broccoli

      Kitchen Wisdom Gluten Free Sicilian Broccoli is delicious and full of flavor.  I boil the broccoli to remove all of the bitters, but it can be steamed or you can use thawed frozen broccoli.  Like so many coastal foods of Sicily and Southern Italy, this dish uses a few anchovy filets finely chopped to contribute a harmonizing flavor.  This simple side is wonderful during the week or with Sunday Dinner.

Yields 3 servings

1  pound Broccoli Florets (Boiled, Steamed or thawed from frozen)

3  cloves Garlic, sliced very thin

4  Anchovy filets, finely chopped

2  tablespoons Olive Oil

½  Lemon, seeds removed

Salt to taste

(Optional) Crushed Red Pepper to taste

¼ cup Water

4

Boil or steam one pound of broccoli for 10 minutes, drain and set aside.  If using frozen broccoli, thaw and squeeze to get most of the liquid out and set aside.

Finely chop anchovy filets, place aside.  Slice garlic very thin* and place aside, please use the amount of garlic which suits you and your personal taste.

Place fry pan on medium high heat, sauté garlic in olive oil until it just begins to turn golden color.  Add optional crushed red pepper, followed by the anchovy, stir.

Immediately put the broccoli in the pan and use tongs to toss and coat with oil, anchovy and garlic.  Add water to pan, toss.  Cover place heat on low.   Cook for 5 minutes. Serve.

 Marinate thin sliced garlic in olive oil before sautéing:

My cousin Gino always thinly slices the garlic and then he allows it to sit in a thin layer of olive oil in a small bowl.  When cooking, throw in soaked garlic when pan is warm.  This soaking method gives the garlic a smoother flavor and less likely to burn.

 Garlic:  Sliced or Finely Chopped?

If you thinly slice garlic, as close to paper thin as possible, the garlic will hide in the leaves of the spinach, creating a tasty pocket of garlic flavor.  Finely chopped garlic will just disappear amidst the leaves or vegetable you are cooking.

Anchovy too “fishy” for you?

Marinate anchovies in a shallow bowl in some milk for a half hour before you are ready to use them.  The milk mellows the pungent aspects of flavor.
