Who wants some Broccolini?
What's Broccolini you ask? I could tell you it's broccoli's cousin, but lets hit Wikipedia instead:
Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thin stalks. Although often misidentified as young broccoli, it is a cross between broccoli and Kai-lan, Chinese broccoli. Broccolini's flavor is sweet, with notes of both broccoli and asparagus.
This recipe has tons of flavor and a just a few ingredients. It can be cooked up super quick too. It is great as a side dish or mixed with pasta.
My mom has been asking me to post this recipe so here it goes.
Broccolini with Garlic and Parmesan
2 Bunches of Broccolini, rinsed and ends trimmed
1/2 C. Low Sodium Chicken Broth
1 (heaping) Tbsp. Garlic, minced
1/3 C. Parmesan Cheese, grated
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
Drop the broccolini In a pot of boiling water for approx 3 minutes.
Remove from the water and transfer to a saute pan. Over medium heat, add the chicken broth, let the broccolini cook for 5-7 minutes until the greens start to wilt or the stems are fork tender.
Reduce the heat to low and add the olive oil.
Add garlic and toss. Finally add the Parmesan cheese, toss and serve.
Remove from the heat, serve and enjoy!
Please excuse my lack of picture for the finished product. I didn't get a chance to take one before everyone started to dig in!
