Sorry to bombard you with 2 broccoli posts back to back, but we harvested the last of our broccoli from the MCG this weekend.
This was the second crop, since after I cut the first stalks, they grew back to grace us with another harvest!
The second time around, the stalks were thinner and smaller, however, they were more tender, and tasted like broccolini.
I steamed them for 2 minutes, then sauteed the bunch with lots of garlic and chopped onion, olive oil, some white beans from the can, and threw in some sun dried tomatoes.
Seasoned them with sea salt & pepper and a squeeze of lemon and dove in.
What a difference it is when you use fresh broccoli, vs. the stuff sitting in the plastic bag all week at the supermarket.
Buy some at the farmer's market this weekend, and try this.
