Boosted Broccoli

Core & Advanced Plan

Serves 4-6

This is a nutrient-dense dish that your body will thank you for.  It is also a great introduction to anchovies for people who say they hate anchovies.  When heated slightly, the anchovies melt away and disappear into a salty, smoky, deeply flavorful kick that can be used as a sauce or even a dressing.  Combined with broccoli, it becomes magical.  
 

broccoli1 bunch organic broccoli

1 clove garlic, crushed
3-4 anchovy fillets (be sure they are packed in olive oil)
pinch of crushed red pepper, optional
olive oil
1/2 lemon
sea salt to taste
 
Cut broccoli into florets and steam to desired tenderness.  Pour olive oil in a pan and turn heat to low/med (do not let the olive oil smoke!).  Add the garlic, anchovies, and red pepper flakes.  Heat gently until anchovies are melted away.  Add the steamed broccoli to the pan along with the juice of the 1/2 lemon and sea salt.
