A hot cast-iron fry pan cooks broccolini in a flash and gives it a lightly charred flavor. Red pepper flakes add a spicy kick to this dish, which is delicious alongside grilled or roasted meats.

  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pound broccolini, stems peeled and spears halved lengthwise
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes


  • 1 In a small cast-iron fry pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 teaspoons of the olive oil until almost smoking. Add half of the broccolini and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly charred and crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and transfer to a plate.
  • 2 Warm the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil in the pan and cook the remaining broccolini. Season with salt, add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Return the first batch of broccolini to the pan and toss to rewarm, about 30 seconds. Serve immediately.
