Ingredients

  • 1 pound broccoli florets cut into bite-sized pieces (from about 1 ½ bunches of broccoli)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Fill a large container or pot with water. Attach the sous vide precision cooker and set the temperature to 180ºF/82ºC.
  • Clean the broccoli thoroughly. Cut the stalk away from the crown, and then slice the florets into bite-sized pieces.
  • Peel the skin of the stalk, and cut it into thin slices.
  • Add them into a zip-lock bag, drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Seal the bag using the “water displacement” technique: seal all but one corner of the bag and slowly place it in the water bath. Make sure everything below the zip-line is covered by water. Then seal the rest of the bag. (Use a vacuum sealer if you have one.)
  • Clip a heavy spoon to the edge of the bag to weigh the bag down. Or use a heavy kitchen item to keep the broccoli completely submerged in the water. (Make sure the seams are above the water).
  • Cook for 15 minutes.
  • When the timer goes off, take the bag out and remove the broccoli from the bag.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper, or your preferred toppings. Serve warmly and enjoy!

Notes

  • Store sous vide broccoli in an airtight container and they can last up to 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
