4 large broccoli stems, trimmed of their bases and woody skin
2 tablespoons green coriander seeds, coriander flower bouquets, and stems
2 large heads roasted garlic (like Ugly Roasted Garlic on page 64 of the
3 ounces thinly sliced lardo (or prosciutto, torn into 2-inch pieces),
1 teaspoon dried coriander seeds
1 teaspoon chopped coriander leaves
Freshly cracked black pepper
Lemon juice, to taste
How to Make It
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium high heat. Add the broccoli stems and sear for 8 minutes, until lightly browned, basting continuously by spooning the melted butter over the stems. Add the fresh coriander seeds, bouquets, and stems and continue to baste for another 3 minutes. Slice each stem crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick rounds.
Spread a generous amount of the roasted garlic on each broccoli coin, and drape with the lardo so that it melts slightly over the broccoli. Scatter with the driedcoriander seeds, coriander leaves, cracked pepper, and a squirt of lemon.
The coriander seeds are important in this dish. I also tried slicing up the broccoli stems first, which made them cook more quickly when I was short on time.
