Broccoli with Red Wine Vinegar

Hi there, I have been so busy I didn't realize that I hadn't posted since April.  Well here is a new recipe I just created this week.  I hope you are all in good health and enjoying summer.


                      Broccoli with Red Wine Vinegar

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
  1              bunch  broccoli
  2        tablespoons  red wine vinegar
  2        tablespoons  olive oil
  1              small  onion -- chopped
                        salt and pepper

Boil a large pot of water.  Blanch the broccoli by putting in the boiling water for
1 1/2 minutes.  Strain the broccoli and plunge into cold water with some ice in it.
This stops it cooking any further.
Saute the onion till soft, about 5 minutes
In a large bowl put 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar and 2 tablespoons olive oil and mix together, then add the onions and then add the broccoli and make sure the dressing gets all over the broccoli.
Serve with protein of your choice, it can be reheated if you like.  Put in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes, but I like it cool.

NOTES : Broccoli is rich in antioxidants, has anti cancer properties and is very high in vitamin C and K.  It also has anti-inflammatory properties.  So all around it is a wonderful vegetable.  It tastes great too and kids seem to love it.
