Broccoli with Caramelized Shallots Recipe

  • 2 tablespoons walnut pieces
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup shallots, thinly sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 bunch broccoli, cut into florets
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Place walnuts in a pie plate and toast in the oven 5 minutes, or until fragrant. Transfer to a small bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring often, until deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. (Add a tablespoon or two of water if the mixture gets too dry.) Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Meanwhile, cook broccoli in boiling salted water until just tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain the broccoli and add to the shallots in the skillet; toss to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with the toasted walnuts.
