Servings: 4 to 6
Start to finish: 20 minutes
1-1/2 pounds broccolini
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt to taste
3 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
1/4 cup dry white wine
Trim the broccolini and cut it into 1-inch pieces, using the stems and the florets.
Heat the olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet (with a lid), the biggest one you have. Add the broccolini and cook, stirring to flip the pieces around occasionally, until they start to turn golden brown but are still crisp tender, about 8 minutes.
Season with salt; add the garlic and red pepper flakes; and saute for 30 to 60 seconds, until you can smell the garlic.
Add the wine and cover the pan for 2 minutes, allowing the liquid to come to a simmer. Remove the lid and saute for another minute until the liquid is almost evaporated and the broccolini is as tender as you like it. Remember that it will soften a bit more off the heat. Serve hot.
