2 small heads of broccoli , cut into florets
2 tsp oil
2 large cloves of garlic , finely chopped or thin small slices
1 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp water
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and generously season with a pinch of salt.
Add the vibrant broccoli to the boiling water and cook it to perfection for 2 to 3 minutes. Look for that bright green hue that promises a delightful experience.
Once the broccoli reaches the pinnacle of its vibrancy, remove it from the heat. Give it a quick drain and refresh it with a refreshing cold water bath. This ensures a crisp and tantalizing texture.
Heat some oil over medium-low heat and let it reach its sizzling point. Now, it's time to introduce the star of the show—garlic! Reduce the heat to low, mix it well, and let the magic unfold. Slowly cook the garlic to a golden perfection, infusing it with delightful roasted flavors for approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Patience is key!
Brace yourself for an explosion of taste! Add soy sauce and red pepper flakes to the skillet, stirring vigorously for a few seconds. To achieve the perfect balance, add a tablespoon of water into the mix, blending all the flavors.
The moment has come to unite the flavorful elements. Drizzle the enticing garlic and soy sauce over your broccoli, or go a step further and add the broccoli directly to the skillet, and mix. To complete the symphony of taste, season with a dash of salt and pepper to your liking.
