  1. 2 medium heads broccoli, cut into 1 1/2-inch florets
  2. Salt
  3. 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. Freshly ground pepper
  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook just until bright green, about 2 minutes. Drain, shaking off any excess water.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet until shimmering. Add the garlic and cook over moderately high heat until fragrant, but not browned, about 1 minute. Add the broccoli and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
