Braised Broccoli

While bright green, perfectly al dente broccoli is delicious, sometimes its nice to cook it down into a tender, earthy side dish.


  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut lengthwise into long spears with stems
  • attached
  • ¼ large onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Put broccoli and onion in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Drizzle with olive oil and tomato paste thinned with about ¼ cup water. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cover. Cook for about 20-30 minutes, until broccoli is meltingly tender. Add more salt if necessary and serve.
