Checklist of Ingredients
- cut and halved lengthwise, 2 bunches fresh Broccolini (about 1 pound)
- 5 cups extra-virgin olive oil, divided, with a little more for drizzling
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, finely chopped
- cannellini or navy beans washed and dried after draining 2 (15.5-ounce) cans (cannellini or navy beans)
- 1 red Fresno chili, finely sliced 1 red Fresno chile
- 1 garlic clove, peeled and coarsely minced
- 1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
- 8 ounces burrata cheese (optional)
- 1 1/2 ounces grated pecorino Romano cheese (about a third of a cup)
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- split half a lemon into four wedges
First, we’ll have a look at what to do
Heat a big skillet over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes, or until it is quite hot. In a large mixing basin, toss together the Broccolini and 3 tablespoons of oil until well combined. Half of the Broccolini should be added to the pan and spread out evenly. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the meat is slightly browned and crisp-tender. Toss the leftover Broccolini into a large mixing bowl and repeat the process. Broccolini should be tossed with 3/4 teaspoon salt.
Carefully wipe the skillet clean and place it back on the stove over medium-high heat. Swirl in 2 tablespoons of oil to coat the pan. Add half of the beans and spread them out evenly in a single layer. Stir occasionally until the outer skins of the beans begin to peel back, crisp, and brown slightly, approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and set aside. Stir in the chile and garlic until fragrant, about 15 to 30 seconds. Remove from heat and set aside. Transfer the mixture to the bowl containing the Broccolini. Replace 2 tablespoons of the oil with the remaining beans, and repeat the operation.
Step number three
Toss the Broccolini and beans with the parsley and the additional 1/4 teaspoon salt until everything is well coated. In a serving dish, place the burrata in the middle and surround it with the Broccolini and Beans combination. Season with Pecorino Romano and freshly ground black pepper. Serve with lemon wedges after drizzling with olive oil.
