  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 6 cups broccoli florets (about 12 ounces)
  • 1 small shallot, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large flat-bottom carbon-steel wok over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and cook, stirring, until browned in spots, about 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Push the broccoli to the sides and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, shallot, garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper; cook, stirring often, until the broccoli is tender, about 3 minutes more. Remove from heat and sprinkle with Parmesan. Cover and let stand until the cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.

I will definitely make this again... maybe tomorrow! I didn't have shallots or white balsamic vinegar. I found a substitution for the vinegar and left out the shallots. Very yummy!

Broccoli has always been one of my favorite vegetables and the parm and garlic and balsamic add tons of flavor to this simple side dish.
