Slightly modified from a Saveur.com recipe. You could add 1/3 C toasted pine nuts to sprinkle before serving, but it does add a lot of calories. The calories here assumes a large portion and that all the sauce is consumed and used equally.

Recipe Ingredients for Jannid's Broccoli with Sicilian Sauce

2 1/2 lbs broccoli florets
1/8 t Kosher salt
1/8 t black pepper,fresh ground
3 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 c parsley, finely chopped
2 red onions, medium sized, thinly sliced
1/2 cup red wine, dry wine
2 tbsp. vinegar, red wine
1 tbsp. tomato paste, generous tablespoon
3/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 tsp garlic, thinly sliced
28 oz. tomatoes, crushed include liquid
1/3 cup olives, pitted black Sicilian
1/3 cup seedless raisins

Recipe Directions for Jannid's Broccoli with Sicilian Sauce

  1. Steam broccoli (either in a microwave or steamer as you prefer) about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to serving dish and season with salt if you like. Leave sitting out as the broccoli is supposed to be served at room temp.

  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add parsley, onions, and salt and pepper as you like, stir often til onions are softened and browned (10 minutes or so).

  3. Add wine, vinegar, tomato paste, oregano, pepper flakes, and garlic and continue cooking stirring occasionally until it reduces a bit to a lovely glaze (about 4-5 minutes).

  4. Stir in the tomatoes with the liquid and bring sauce to a boil. Lower heat to medium low and simmer uncovered stirring every now and then til it thickens a little (about 8-10 minutes).

  5. Here is where I take exception to the recipe. I detest olives and will serve them at the table to be added by those that eat the nasty things. However, if you are strange and like olives, you will add the them here and simmer another 10 minutes.

  6. You may now safely continue with the recipe if you have skipped the olive part. Stir in the raisins and simmer a minute or so. At this point you can either spoon the sauce over the room temp broccoli or place it in a bowl so people can dress the broccoli at the table with sauce, olives *shudders*, or pine nuts.

  7. You can make the sauce up to 3 days in advance and I plan to do so for Thanksgiving!

  8. enjoy it mindfully.
