Who says Broccoli is a boring vegetable? It’s all a matter of perspective and how you make it. Like all green vegetables, Broccoli too is very high in dietary fiber and pack with minerals, vitamins, and nutrients. I think it will be a worthy challenge if someone dared me to whip up fantastic broccoli recipes. I’m up for it!

Today’s pure vegetarian recipe is incredibly simple and very tasty. It takes a few minutes to prepare, has no complicated ingredients, and will disappear in minutes after its prepared. Believe me!

Total time
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Fusion
Serves: 3
  • Broccoli - 1 Cup, Cut into Florets and Blanched in Hot Salted Water
  • Potatoes - 1 Large Cut into Cubes roughly 1 cm in Size and Parboiled
  • Garlic - 5 Cloves Minced
  • Salt - To Taste
  • Fresh Black Pepper - 2 Pinches Coarsely Ground
  • Butter - 1 Tablespoon
  1. Place a non-stick frying pan on the stove and turn heat to medium-high.
  2. Add Butter and melt.
  3. Add Garlic and sauté until fragrant.
  4. Add Potatoes and sauté for 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Add Broccoli and sauté.
  6. Add Salt and Pepper, stir, cover frying pan and let veggies cook for 5 to 6 minutes on low heat.
  7. Next turn the heat up to high and cook. Toss vegetables in the pan for even cooking and caramelization.
  8. Check seasoning and softness of potatoes. if potatoes mash easily or with very little resistance your awesome dish is done!
  9. Serve hot and enjoy with almost anything!

Instead of using olive oil, use butter as this will add oodles of taste and flavor. A bit of butter is harmless! So please use butter! For me, the smell of melting butter really works up my appetite! So for as long as I can and wherever I can,  I’ll pass up olive oil for butter any day!

There is just one tip I would like to tell you about while making any Broccoli Recipe – Do not over cook the Broccoli. Mushy Broccoli is difficult to palate! A little crunchiness in a vegetarian recipe adds so much texture and does make the dish interesting to eat! Besides, leaving veggies a bit raw when cooking retains most of their goodness!

Do make this recipe dear reader! I am sure that you’ll like it as much as what I have! Enjoy!
