Broccoli with Sun Dried Tomatoes and Nuts

1 large or 2 small bunch of broccoli
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
3 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes (packed in oil) cut in strips
3 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Prepare broccoli into chunks about 1" square. Don't use the bottom 2 inches of the stem. Boil salted water in a large pot and stir in broccoli. Cook for 2-3 minutes until tender. Drain broccoli in a collander. Refill the pot with cold water and put the broccoli back it. This will stop the broccoli continuing to cook. Drain broccoli again.

In a large fry pan, heat the oil, garlic, red pepper flakes and sun dried tomatoes over a moderate heat. In 3-4 minutes, once the garlic is sizzling, raise the heat and add the broccoli and pine nuts. Stir until all ingredients are well combined and the broccoli heated through. Serve immediately.

This recipe is a perfect blend of colour, texture and taste. Brilliant!
