Broccoli with Vin Cotto

Coated in a balsamic vinegar glaze, this garlic-flecked broccoli makes for a lovely supper side.

Ingredients:
1 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup sugar
1 pound broccoli, washed and trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled
ΒΌ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Sea salt

Method:
1. Pour balsamic vinegar and sugar into a small saucepan set over medium heat. Let reduce by a half to a third, 25-30 minutes. Set aside.

2. Set a 6-quart pot of water to boil. When boiling, add the broccoli and blanch for about 2 minutes. Drain, rinse under cold water, and set aside.

3. Set a cast iron skillet over high heat. Add the olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes and cook to season the oil for a minute or two. Add the blanched broccoli and sear, tossing carefully after a minute. After 3-4 minutes more, remove from heat. (The broccolini should be tender yet retain a definite crunch.)

4. Transfer the broccoli, garlic and pepper flakes to a serving platter and pour any remaining oil from the skillet over the veggies. Drizzle generously with the vin cotto glaze. Season with more salt and pepper as desired.
