Sicilian Broccoli Affogati

Broccoli Affogati comes from the island of Siciliy in Italy. It means "drowned broccoli" because the broccoli is cooked in red wine. It can be served as a side dish or on top of pasta.

Serves 3-4

What you need:

3 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, sliced
3 cups broccoli, florets
1/3 cup black olives, sliced (optional)
1 cup water
1 cup red wine
1 tsp salt

In a pot on medium-high heat, heat the olive oil and add in the sliced onion. Cook until the onions are soft and add the broccoli. Stir for a few minutes and add the one cup water and salt. Cook, stirring the broccoli until the water evaporates and then add the wine. Stir for another 15 or until the broccoli reaches desired texture.


  1. black olives shouln't be optional, they should be required!

  2. Mmm, I love the broccoli-olive combo!


  3. Made this... simple and DELICIOUS
