Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts or chopped slivered almonds

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 cup chopped onion (about 1 medium)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • 4 cups broccoli florets

  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

  • Freshly ground pepper to taste

Directions
  1. Toast pine nuts (or almonds) in a medium dry skillet over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl to cool.

  2. Add oil to the pan and heat over medium heat. Add onion and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, adjusting heat as necessary, until soft and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, steam broccoli until just tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl. Add the nuts, onion, vinegar and pepper; toss to coat. Serve immediately.
