Cooking can often expand your tastes but sometimes it can expand your vocabulary, too. Case in point: have you heard of “almondine?” Chef Nino has, which is why on Tuesday, March 22, at 3pm EST you’ll see how he’s made this technique part of his latest Cooped Up and Cooking recipe, Broccoli Almondine with Pan-Seared Tuna Filets. Join him to see what this recipe is all about and hopefully challenge your cooking skills (in a good way!). Lastly, here’s a teaser: almondine (known as “amandine” in other parts of the world), means a garnish of—you guessed it—almonds!
1 ½ pounds fresh or frozen broccoli, stems peeled and cut into 2-inch-wide
spears, 2 tablespoons olive oil, ⅓ cup sliced almonds, 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, 1 teaspoon diced fresh garlic.
