Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 3 minutes


1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. grated fresh lemon zest
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
2 lbs. broccoli, cut into florets, stems peeled and thinly sliced


1. Fill a large pot 2/3 full of water. Bring to boiling. In the meantime, make the gremolata: In a small bowl, combine the parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Set aside.

2. Add the broccoli to the boiling water and turn off the heat. Let the broccoli stand in the water for 3 minutes. Drain. Add the broccoli to a bowl. Add the gremolata and gently toss while the broccoli is warm.

Note: The quick-cook method yields crisp, bright-green broccoli florets.
