Surely you too have recipes that always succeed. In my collection, this is one of them. It is interesting to note that as a child I had not known broccoli at all. And yet, already the greatest gourmets in ancient Rome had enjoyed this type of vegetable! But it seems that the Italians did not rush to export broccoli to other parts of Europe, it did not happen until the second half of the 20th century. Even the name comes from Italian! It is the plural of the word broccolo, which means an offset, a sprout.
Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables, I also like its deep green color which stands out nicely in various dishes. However, in Sicily, purple broccoli is also grown, so I hope to taste that one one day too.
And here is my favorite recipe. Bon appetite!
