A tasty side dish, perfect with chicken, pork, beef, or seafood.

Cook Broccolini in a 6 to 8-quart pot of boiling salted water until the stems are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes.  Drain in a colander, and then plunge into a large bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking.  Drain again and pat dry with paper towels.

Heat 1 ½ teaspoons oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking.  Add half of garlic and ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes and sauté until garlic is golden, about 1 minute.  Add half of Broccolini and 2 tablespoons of stock and cook, stirring, 2 minutes.  Transfer to a serving dish, then repeat with remaining oil, garlic, red pepper flakes, Broccolini, and stock.  

Season with salt.
