Pan-fried sausages and broccoli

Often, the solutions to our culinary dilemmas are closer than we think. What shall we make for dinner tonight? What could we make by way of a single one-pan dish which is both tasty and healthy and suitable for the whole family? Today we have a very simple answer to this question which uses only two ingredients, broccoli and sausages. If your family doesn't particularly like vegetables, this recipe also represents a useful trick for making them rather more inviting: cooking the sausage in white wine confers a particularly delicious flavour to the broccoli.


  • sausages 500 grams
  • broccoli 2 heads of broccoli
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • garlic 2 cloves
  • white wine a splash of white wine
  • salt
  • pepper

Carefully wash a fairly big head of broccoli, remove any leaves and cut the florets into many small pieces. Boil the broccoli until 'al dente', taking care not to cook it completely. In a frying pan, briefly sauté two whole cloves of garlic in some oil, add the chopped sausage and brown them for a few minutes with a little white wine. Now add the cut up broccoli florets, season with some salt and pepper, and continue cooking for another few minutes. Serve hot.

If you want to try a variation on this dish, you could use other seasonal depending on where you live and the time of year: consider greens, cauliflower, cabbage etc
Broccoli has excellent cleansing and purifying qualities: if you don't want to lose these benefits during the boiling process, try steaming the broccoli instead before transferring them to the frying pan with the sausages.
