Broccolini with Pine Nuts and Raisins

This Broccolini with Pine Nuts and Raisins dish was so satisfying, and you really feel like you’re eating clean. Look good, feel good, right? My kids loved this because of the sweetness of the raisins, and it made them eat some broccolini, which is high in vitamin C. It also contains vitamin A, calcium, folate, and iron. I took my inspiration from Peter Berley, which I love. His cookbook The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen is one of my favorites. Serve this broccolini recipe as a side, or as part of a complete meal, when served with a grain or some quinoa.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and left whole
  • 2 bunches broccolini, trimmed and cut in 2″ lengths
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/3 cup pine nuts
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/21 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • Lemon wedges, to serve

Instructions

In a large pot, bring some water to a boil. Add the garlic and let cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove the garlic to a paper towel lined plate. With the water still boiling, add the broccolini and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Drain.

In a pan, heat up the oil over medium heat. Holding the pan on its side, so the oil pools to one side, add the garlic and sauté for about 2 minutes, until starting to turn golden. Level the pan and add the pine nuts, raisins, and red pepper flakes. Sauté for about 2 minutes. Add the broccolini, season with salt and pepper to taste, and sauté until tender, 5-6 minutes. Serve with the lemon wedges. This is a great one. You can serve with a grain for a complete meal. Bon appétit!

Ingredients

  • 6 gousses d’ail, pelées et entières
  • 2 bottes de broccolini, paré et coupé en longueur de 2 pouces (5 cm)
  • 1/3 tasse d’huile d’olive
  • 1/3 tasse de noix de pin
  • 1/3 tasse de raisins secs
  • 1/2 à 1 c. à thé de flocons de chili broyés

Instructions

Dans une grande casserole, porter de l’eau à ébullition. Ajouter l’ail, laisser mijoter 3 à 4 minutes. Retirer l’ail et déposer sur des papiers absorbants. Avec l’eau à ébullition, ajouter le broccolini et cuire pendant 2 à 3 minutes. Égoutter.

Dans une poêle, chauffer l’huile d’olive à feu moyen. En soutenant fermement la poêle à 45˚ afin que l’huile s’accumule d’un côté, ajouter l’ail. Laisser dorer pendant 2 minutes. Remettre la poêle à plat et ajouter les noix de pin, les raisins secs et les flocons de chili broyés. Faire revenir pendant 2 minutes. Ajouter le broccolini, assaisonner de sel de mer et de poivre, au goût, et cuire, en remuant souvent, jusqu’à ce qu’il soit tendre, environ 5 à 6 minutes. Servir avec les quartiers de citron. Bon appétit!
