Skillet Broccoli with Garlic, Pine Nuts, and Parmesan
We wanted to use the stems but streamline their cooking.
Why This Recipe Works
A number of Skillet Broccoli with Garlic, Pine Nuts, and Parmesan recipes suggest you simply discard the stems and only cook the florets. We found they added valuable flavor and decided to leave them in. To ensure that the florets and stems finished at the same time, we cut the stems into small pieces and added them to the skillet a few minutes before adding the florets. Toasting the pine nuts enhanced their flavor, and using the same pan to cook the broccoli saved on cleanup.
