Broccolini sautéed with extra-virgin olive oil, lots of garlic, hot pepper, and vegetable broth until they're tender, and the garlic is crispy golden brown. A healthy green vegetable with a tender crunch, garlicky flavor and a little heat in every bite! Delish!
This is a perfect vegetable to serve as a side dish and it goes well with any meat, poultry or fish. Whether you steam, sauté or roast them, they cook up in a matter of minutes! No need for any prep-work at all, only a good rinse is needed, and they're ready to sauté. We love that!
Broccolini is a cross between broccoli and Chinese broccoli, with smaller florets and longer stems. It has a similar appearance to the broccoli rabe, but they're not bitter like the rabe. They are sweeter in taste, which is ideal if you are cooking this broccoli for the kids.
Nowadays, broccolini are considered to be among the "super-food" greens, a vegetable that is rich in Vitamins C, A, iron and folate. A healthy vegetable to serve your family often! Our family loves this dish!
