Broccoli with Orange Zest and Garlic I made this dish with the citrus chicken. I love making broccoli and sometimes run out of ways of reinventing the vegetable. I sautéed up some sliced garlic to start with. I then added the broccoli. I added some delicious white wine, orange juice and zest.

This dish has incredible flavor thanks to the garlic, wine and orange zest. It is simple to make and it complements the citrus chicken beautifully.

Make this side dish next time you are confused about how to make your broccoli!

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 3 garlic cloves, sliced thin
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • Zest and juice of one navel orange
  • Salt

Heat a large frying pan with the olive oil. Add the garlic and orange zest and sauté for 30 seconds on medium heat. Add the broccoli florets and sauté on high heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the white wine, orange juice and salt. Mix well and cover with lid on a low heat for 5 minutes or till the florets are slightly tender but not over done. Serve with any protein.
