Prepare the Broccoli:

  1. Begin by cutting the broccoli into florets. Place the florets in a large bowl and pour boiling water over them. Add 1 tablespoon of salt to the water. Let the broccoli sit for 10-15 minutes, then drain and set aside.

Cook the Potatoes:

  1. Peel and chop the potatoes into bite-sized pieces. Heat a generous amount of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the potatoes to the pan, seasoning them with salt, black pepper, and dried garlic to taste.
  2. Fry the potatoes until they are halfway cooked through, stirring occasionally. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Sauté the Onion and Carrot:

  1. Peel and finely chop the onion. In the same pan used for the potatoes, add a bit more olive oil and the chopped onion. Fry for about 3 minutes until the onion starts to become translucent.
  2. Peel and dice the carrot. Add it to the pan with the onion and continue to fry for another 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the Mushrooms:

  1. Clean and slice the mushrooms. Add them to the pan with the onion and carrot. Cook until the mushrooms are roasted to a golden brown, stirring frequently.
  2. Season the mushroom mixture with salt, black pepper, and dried basil. Stir well to combine all the flavors.

Combine and Serve:

  1. Add the partially cooked potatoes and blanched broccoli to the pan with the mushroom mixture. Stir gently to combine.
  2. Continue to cook over medium heat for a few more minutes until all the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded together.
  3. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
