Something new – broccolini

Broccoli is definitely a staple veggie in our household, but this week I decided to go out on a limb and get broccolini.  Crazy, I know.  To my surprise, I think I might like broccolini better!  The original recipe was from the Barefoot Contessa, but I switched it up a bit by using soy sauce instead of balsamic.

1 bunch of broccolini

1/4 cup olive oil

1 Tbs soy

1 squeeze dijon mustard

1 clove garlic minced

1/2 lemon

Salt and Pepper

  • Blanch the broccolini in boiling water for about 2 minutes.  I like blanching vegetables before adding flavor because it really helps them keep their nice color.
  • Drain and place in ice water to keep them from cooking.  Sometimes I skip the ice water bath, and just take them out a few seconds earlier
  • Whisk the remaining ingredients and drizzle over the broccolini.

The lemon and soy together are fabulous!  Such an easy and fast way to add Vitamin C to your meal.
