Ollie's Broccoli Bean Salad

This is an easy to make Broccoli-Bean-Tomato Salad. Make it spicy or mild, it's your choice


Ingredient list

2 fresh tomatoes or 12 cherry tomatoes or a 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes (you only need 1 cup from this)
2 cloves of garlic
1 14 oz can of white beans
salt and pepper
cumin
hot pepper flakes
goat's milk parmesan cheese

Here's what you do:

Pour 2 tbsp of olive oil in a deep fry pan or wok. On medium heat stir in 2-4 minced cloves of garlic. Let it heat for about one minute then add 1 large head of broccoli, rinsed and coarsely chopped. Add a little salt and pepper and if you like spicy, add some hot pepper flakes. You can also add a bit of cumin (about 1/2 tsp) Stir fry for 5 minutes or until broccoli is slightly wilted.

Remove the broccoli to a casserole or serving dish.

Now you can either use fresh tomatoes or you can cheat and used canned diced tomatoes. If you are using fresh, put about 1 tbsp. olive oil in the wok and add 2 chopped tomatoes or the dozen cherry tomatoes. Stir fry for about 7 minutes. Then add one 14 oz. can of white beans which have been rinsed and drained. Stir fry for about 3 minutes then remove from heat and pour over the broccoli.

If you are using canned diced tomatoes, use a slotted spoon to remove about 1 cup of tomatoes from the can. Put them in the fry pan and heat with one 14 oz. can of white beans which have been rinsed and drained. Stir fry for about 3 minutes then remove from heat and pour over the broccoli.

Sprinkle goat's milk parmesan cheese on top. Serve hot.
