Yield4 generous servings
2 heads of broccoli (chopped into bite size pieces)
5 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
½ cup olive oil
1½ tablespoons lime juice (freshly squeezed)
2 teaspoons cumin
Sprinkle of sea salt
1. Mix garlic, olive oil, lime juice and cumin in a jar.
2. Pour over broccoli and salt to taste. The key to this dish is to let the dressing marinate with the broccoli for several hours or days. I find the longer it marinates the better it tastes.
3. Let it marinate at room temperature for at least an hour before eating though.
4. I also store it in a plastic container with a lid in order to give it a few good shakes every so often and spread the dressing around.
GermanGirl's ThoughtsBy GermanGirl
For all you broccoli lovers out there, this is hands-down my favorite recipe.
The original recipe steamed the broccoli lightly, heated the oil briefly, and used red wine vinegar.
I find this tastes just as good, if not better!
