  • 1 bunch broccolini 150g
  • 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • tsp sea salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper


Equipment Needed


  • Heat a skillet on medium heat with the oil. Peel a clove of garlic and crush it through a garlic press or mince it very finely. Prepare the broccolini by washing it thoroughly and then slicing the ends off. If they are larger pieces, they can be sliced in half lengthwise.
  • Add the garlic to the hot skillet and stir it around in the oil until the garlic is fragrant, just a moment or two, then stir in the prepared broccolini until it has been evenly coated with the garlic and oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Continue to sauté in the hot skillet for about 5 minutes, until the broccolini is vibrant in colour and has some dark roasted marks.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!


Expert Tips

  1. I like to use a garlic press so that the garlic is minced very finely with little effort.
  2. Slice the broccolini in half lengthwise to ensure that each piece has both stem and florets.
  3. Be sure the pan and oil is hot before adding the garlic and broccolini.
