April 12, 2018

Ingredients

  • 1 cup finely chopped broccoli stalks (or stems and leaves)
  • 1 cup finely chopped kale ribs
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup mix of parsley, cilantro, rosemary (whatever you have), chopped finely
  • ¼ cup minced green olives
  • 4–5 yellow/red small tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 medium baguette, cut into ½-inch slices
  • ¼ cup feta crumbles (optional)

Preparation

Chop broccoli stalks and kale ribs (use a vegetable peeler to remove broccoli’s tough outer skin, if necessary).

Bring water to boil in a medium saucepan. Carefully drop in broccoli/kale pieces and blanch* about 30 seconds.

Fill a medium-size bowl with water and ice cubes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer veggies to ice water for 1 minute. Drain and lightly pat pieces dry.

Mix in 2 tablespoons olive oil and ¼ teaspoon kosher salt.

Heat a nonstick skillet to medium/high. Add broccoli/kale pieces, reduce to medium, and cook 6–7 minutes, until soft.

Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add 3 tablespoons olive oil, herbs, olives, tomatoes, garlic, and lemon juice. Mix and season to taste.

Toast or grill bread; top with mixture. Drizzle with olive oil and/or sprinkle feta.

About this recipe
