BROCCOLI LA DUNI

6a0105364db45b970c01348544414b970c-800wi

One of our favorite restaurants in Dallas in La Duni.  La Duni's is a Colombian restaurant, but they also have a wonderful bakery, and make the most amazing coffee drinks too!  One of my favorite things to order is their broccoli.  This is my version of their recipe, I've eaten it so many times, I just guessed a bit at the ingredients.  The girls think I'm pretty close…..

La duni 

Broccoli La Duni

Head of broccoli trimmed into florets

2 cloves of garlic minced

red pepper flakes

fresh lime

Blanch broccoli florets for 2 minutes in boiling salted water, drain.  Heat a large skillet with a bit of olive oil, and cook garlic just till it starts to brown.  Add broccoli.  Stir for 5 to 6 minutes until broccoli starts to brown a bit.  Sprinkle very lightly with red pepper flakes.  Remove from heat, and squeeze a generous amount of fresh lime juice on top.  

Enjoy!!

    Sounds delicious! I make a spaghetti dish with very similar flavourings, although I usually use lemon… next time I will use lime! Here’s my pasta: http://semolinapilchard.blogspot.com/2010/06/whole-wheat-spaghetti-with-broccoli.html

    YUM! We eat something similar on a regular basis, since broccoli is supposed to be so high in calcium and my mum has osteoporosis. Instead of red chili flakes we use whole red chilis.

    That’s great! I just bought some broccoli. I never thought of putting fresh lime on it. I’d try that in a few minutes. Thanks Judy!

    That is almost exactly the way Julia Child recommends cooking broccoli in “The Way To Cook,” except her recipe doesn’t have the red pepper flakes, and I think she has you boil the broccoli a bit longer in the water and lightly toss in the olive oil pepper. I only know because I just made it last week… but your way actually sounds a bit better, with the red pepper flakes!
