Well, I’ve gone and done it. After all the talk I’ve heard through the food blogging universe about broccolini, I had to try it myself. And as it turns out I love it, and my husband – the self proclaimed vegetable hater – doesn’t mind it, which is high praise for him. It was sweeter than broccoli with a faint peppery edge. Definitely a YUM worthy vegetable.
1 bunch broccolini
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to tasteSteam broccolini in a steamer basket until bright green and tender, for five to 10 minutes.
Heat olive oil over medium heat in large skillet. Add garlic and sauté 1-2 minutes, until golden brown.
Stir in lemon juice, salt and pepper.
Add broccolini to the pan and toss to coat.
