Y'all have seen a variety of recipes for Broccoli. I wanted to find the perfect recipe for Broccolini.
If you aren't familiar... Broccolini is a fusion of Broccoli and Asian Kale. It is tender and slightly sweet. Here I have combined the perfect 'flavors' and enhanced our favorite veggie. It is light, and easy to throw together in a couple of minutes.As always the recommended flavors have been capitalized.
Broccolini a la Flavour
1 Tbs OLIVE OIL
2 cloves GARLIC
1/8 tsp RED PEPPER flakes
1 bunch broccolini, stem ends trimmed
Kosher SALT and freshly ground BLACK PEPPER, to taste
1/2 cup water
juice of one LEMON
In a nonstick fry pan over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Add garlic and red pepper flakes and heat, add the zest of one lemon. Stir constantly, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the broccolini, tossing well to combine. Add the water and lemon juice, cover and steam for about 3 minutes. Uncover and continue cooking until all the water has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.This is the perfect flavor for Salmon . . . my 'go-to weeknight meal'.
