Lemon and Garlic Broccolini

I picked up some broccolini at the store and I wanted to make a simple and healthy side dish. I found an Ellie Krieger recipe from the Food Network that sounded easy and delicious. I added some minced garlic to the dressing for added flavor. This recipe took only minutes to make and tasted fantastic! I will be making this recipe again and again.

Original recipe by Ellie Krieger at the Food Network
 
  • 8 oz broccolini
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, lemon zest, minced garlic, sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Whisk together until well combined. Set aside to allow flavors to mingle.

Wash and trim the broccolini then steam it for 5 minutes until it is crisp yet tender. Drizzle the dressing on top then toss until evenly combined. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    I love broccolini, and your lemon dressing sounds lovely! I "steam" my broccolini or broccoli in the microwave (in a bowl with a Tbsp. of water covered in waxed paper). I love to cook but hate the clean up!

    Sometimes lemon discolors green veggies a bit, but I love the extra flavor it imparts!

    The simplicity of this recipe is what is perfect, that way you can enjoy the flavors of what you are eating instead of something heavy that masks the taste of the broccolini. Lovely recipe!

    I love broccolini. It lacks the bitterness that broccoli sometimes has. Simple recipes are the best. :)
