Gooey and luscious, this addictive starter is like a deconstructed broccoli quesadilla.

Food & Wine DECEMBER 2012

  • Yield: 6
  • Total:30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds broccoli, heads cut into 1-inch florets, stems peeled and diced
  • 1 clove (large) garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chile powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt
  • 1 pound provolone cheese, sliced
  • Warm tortillas, for serving

Preparation

Preheat the broiler and position a rack 8 inches from the heat. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the broccoli and garlic and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is browned in spots and crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the spices and oregano. Season with salt and cook for 1 minute. Add 1/2 cup of water and cook until the broccoli is tender and the liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes.

Arrange half of the cheese in 6 individual gratin dishes. Top with the broccoli and the remaining cheese. Broil for 5 to 6 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and browned. Serve right away with warm tortillas.
