2 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic- crushed
3/4 lb. broccoli, cauliflower and romanesco florets
1/2 c dried whole wheat pastina (any tiny shape)
5 c vegetable broth
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Directions:   Saute the garlic in olive oil in a large saucepan for about 2 minutes. Add the tiny florets to the garlic and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Stir the pastina into the floret mixture, cook for 1 to 2 minutes, then add the vegetable broth. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, cover and bring to a boil.
