Broccoli with Oil and Lemon

Serves 6


1 1/2 pounds broccoli
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 to 2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
lemon wedges, for garnish

1 Cut the broccoli into large florets. Trim off the ends of the stems. Peel off the tough skin with a swivel-blade vegetable peeler. Cut thick stems crosswise into 1/4-inch slices.

2 Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and salt to taste. Cook until the broccoli is tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and cool slightly under cold running water.

3 Drizzle the broccoli with the oil and lemon juice. Garnish with the lemon wedges. Serve at room temperature.
