Yesterday was the first time I have ever eaten broccolini in my twenty (plus a few) years of existence. I wish I had discovered it sooner because it’s delicious!

Broccolini, or baby broccoli, is a hybrid vegetable similar to regular broccoli, but different in a few ways. In particular, it has smaller florets, a longer, thinner stalk, and a slightly different (and in my opinion, better) taste. It’s slightly sweet and reminiscent of asparagus.

Broccolini can be served in a variety of ways including raw, boiled or steamed. I chose to roast it, which brought out more of its flavor and added a bit of crispness.

Here’s a basic recipe for Roasted Broccolini for you to enjoy.
