Broccolini with Sesame and Ginger

I haven’t worked with broccolini a lot so I was interested to give this Oct Everyday Food recipe a shot.

Heat 2 tsp sesame seeds in a pan over medium heat until toasted. Remove. Add 2 tsp oil to the pan and 2 bunches broccolini with 2 sliced garlic cloves and thinly sliced small piece of ginger (the recipe does not specify how big). Add 1/2 cup water and cover. Cook until it is “crisp-tender” which the recipe says is about 12 minutes. Then uncover and add 2 tsp soy sauce and cook until evaporated, about 30 seconds. Top with sesame seeds and serve.

I needed to add more water to this as mine kept evaporating. The ginger and garlic gave this a nice flavor without being overpowering at all. I liked the broccolini – tasted almost exactly like broccoli to me actually, just thinner. This was a nice quick and easy veg that was something different.

    Whenever I travel I find myself craving greens. And I know what I’m going to cook up just as soon as I get home!

  2. This looks wonderful. I’m always looking for good, unique ways to cook veggies and get them down my husband. He’s worse than a kid when it comes to greens.

    I am really liking broccolini a lot. I just steamed some last night and we ate it just plain with some butter on it and it was good. My son complains because there is more stem, but I like it.

  4. Oh–you’re combing some of my favorite flavors here. I’m going to have to try this.
