Broccolini, my love
What is the difference between broccoli and broccolini?
Broccolini is actually a hybrid! It is a cross between broccoli and Chinese broccoli, and has only been around since 1993. Broccolini is my all time favourite vegetable to cook. I am known as a broccoli lover, however, I think broccolini has a much better flavour and texture when roasted compared to broccoli. Smothered in oil and garlic, you can’t go wrong with this roasted broccolini!
What is the best way to cook broccolini?
I’m sure there are many people who would argue with me on this fact, but here I go anyways. The best way to cook broccolini, without a doubt, is to roast it with olive oil and garlic.
Sure you can pan fry it; delicious. Steam it; awesome. Barbecue it; excellent choice. But roast it? Perfection.
How to roast broccolini
I like to roast my broccolini with green beans and carrots if I have them! If not, broccolini is beautiful all by itself. Smother it in olive oil, minced garlic and bake at 400° for 20 minutes. My favourite is when the little florets get all toasty. Yum.
Try roasting broccolini on the barbecue, it’s absolutely delicious, especially when paired with some BBQ chicken thighs or a salmon filet!
