Broccoli Sicilian Style

Broccoli Sicilian Style

I love broccoli and I love this unique Sicilian broccoli dish.  Shake up your broccoli and give it a try.  Don’t let the anchovy fillets discourage you.  Don’t be shy!


1 Small Bunch Broccoli

5 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1 Large Sliced Onion

10 Diced Pitted Black Olives

4 Anchovy Fillets (Cut Into Pieces)

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

1/4 Pound Diced Provolone Cheese

1 Cup Dry Red Wine

Clean the broccoli and cut into very thin slices.  Pour 1 tablespoon of the olive oil into a large sauté pan.  Place half of the onion slices into the pan, half of the olives and half of the anchovies.  Add half of the cheese on top, 1/4 of the kosher salt, 1/4 of the pepper and 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.  Repeat the procedure until all of the ingredients are used.  Pour the remaining olive oil over the top and then add the wine.  Cover the pan and cook over a low heat for 30 minutes.  You will want the broccoli to be tender.  Remove from the heat and serve hot.  Serves 4
