How to make Roasted Broccolini
Slice between the broccolini stems and place in an even layer on a baking sheet with thinly sliced garlic cloves. Drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle steak seasoning and grated parmesan cheese on top. Place in a 400°F preheated oven for 20 minutes.
I generally use Montreal Steak Seasoning for this recipe. It contains coarse salt, pepper, garlic, onion and paprika. It can easily be found in the grocery store next to the salt and pepper. If you have another similar steak seasoning at home, that will work too!
What is the difference between broccoli and broccolini?
While the taste of broccoli and broccolini is very similar, the appearance is different. Broccolini, also known as baby broccoli, has smaller florets than broccoli and longer, thin stalks.
Broccolini is a hybrid of broccoli and gai lan, which is also known as Chinese broccoli. Check out my recipe for Drunken Noodles to see a picture of the three different types of broccoli.
The stems, small florets and leaves found on broccolini are all edible and can be roasted together in this recipe. Broccolini can be found at most major grocery stores and farmers markets. If you can’t find it at your grocery store, traditional broccoli can be substituted in this recipe.
Are broccolini and rapini the same?
Rapini, also known as broccoli rabe, isn’t actually a member of the broccoli family. It is a member of the turnip family and has a more bitter, pungent flavor than broccolini.
Is broccolini keto?
At only 9 carbs per serving, this recipe is great for those on a low carb or keto diet. It’s also gluten free and easily made vegan by omitting the parmesan cheese on top.
