Broccoli with Fresh Tomato Sauce
1 head broccoli
1 small tomato
1/4 small onion
1 clove garlic
salt, to taste
3 tablespoons oil
1. Steam Broccoli: Rinse brocooli, cut off stems, and separate florets into bite-sized pieces. Place a steamer basket in a pot and fill pot with 1 inch of water; bring to a boil. Add brocolli, cover, and reduce heat to medium; cook for 5 to 6 minutes. (If you don't have a steamer basket, place the broccoli directly into the pot.) The broccoli is done when it can be pierced with a fork.
2. Sauce: To a blender, add tomato, onion, garlic, and salt; blend until smooth.
3. In a skillet over medium-high heat, combine sauce and oil; stir and cook until tomato is a darkish red, 5 to 7 minutes.
4. Pour broccoli into the skillet; stir to coat. Serve.
You can also add pasta to this recipe. I usuallly use spiral or penne pasta.
