Roasted Broccolini 

QUICK RECIPE

My new favorite vegetable is broccolini. It doesn’t taste as harsh as broccoli and I like the long stalk which gives it extra crunch.  What is broccolini? It is a hybrid of broccoli and gai lan, a Chinese broccoli.  It had a similar top but a longer stem.  I find broccolini easier to consume and it is as healthy as regular broccoli.

Wash and dry about 10 broccoloni.  I also like to trim the ends. Once they are ready to go, place them in a large baking sheet.

Toss in 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil and sprinkle with 1 tsp of coarse sea salt.  This may be one of the easiest and healthiest side dishes to include in your meals.

Bake at 400º for 20 minutes.  I like to see the top ends crisp up a bit.

Squeeze 1/2 small lemon over the broccolini and serve.  This is a great, quick side-dish.
