Recipe type: Sides & Sauces
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 6 anchovies, mashed
  • 1 kg (2ΒΌ lbs) broccoli

  1. Trim the bottom of your broccoli stems. Using a vegetable peeler or paring knife, remove as much of the fibrous outer skin of the stalk as you can. Cut the broccoli lengthways, and then again (until you have your preferred size)
  2. In a large pot, combine the olive oil and sliced garlic. Cook over medium heat until the oil is shimmering and everything is just beginning to get hot and sizzle. Add the anchovies and give a stir.
  3. When the anchovies begin to melt, add the broccoli and season with salt.
  4. Pop the lid on your pot, turn the heat as low as it will go and cook for about two hours.
  5. Every 20 minutes or so, very gently turn the broccoli over to ensure even distribution of oil.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature
