Braised Broccoli "Rice" Salad
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely minced or pressed
1 15 oz. can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 head of broccoli, including stalks, finely chopped (about 4 cups)
Salt and pepper
2 tsp. lemon juice
Zest from one lemon
2 Tbsp. chopped parsley, chives and/or celery leaves
In a deep skillet or soup pot, saute the garlic in oil for a minute, then add the garbanzo beans and stir. Add broccoli, season with salt and pepper and cook for about 2 minutes more, just until broccoli turns bright green. Add 1 Tbsp. water, turn heat to low, cover and steam-cook for about 1-2 minutes (you want the broccoli to be crisp-tender). Stir in the lemon juice, zest, and herbs.
Season to your taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
