Easy Garlic Broccolini

Easy Garlic Broccolini Recipe - Broccolini or “baby broccoli” is simply the more delicate version of broccoli. It’s slightly sweeter and is similar to asparagus in flavor. When I cook this marvelous vegetable, I like to make sure I am adding other components that will only enhance the earthy flavor of the broccolini. And that’s exactly why this is my go-to way to cook broccolini. I simply sauté it in olive oil and butter with lots of garlic—and that is all she wrote.

Easy Garlic Broccolini Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches broccolini
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) olive oil
  • 1 tbsp (14 g) butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Sea salt and black pepper

How to make Easy Garlic Broccolini

  1. Bring a large pot with about 8 cups (1.9 L) of water to a boil and season with a generous amount of sea salt. Remove and discard the bottom third of the broccolini stems. If you have some that are very thick, cut them in half lengthwise.
  2. While the water comes to a boil, prepare an ice bath of half ice and half cold water. When the water comes to a full boil, add the trimmed broccolini and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, until the broccolini stalks are crisp and tender.
  3. Remove the broccolini from the boiling water and immediately transfer it to the ice bath to stop the cooking process. Drain in a colander and set the broccolini aside.
  4. Heat the olive oil and butter in a large skillet and add the garlic. Sauté for about 1 minute, until the garlic is fragrant. Add the broccolini, toss and sauté to heat the broccolini through, about 2 minutes. Season with a few pinches of salt and pepper.
