Easy Garlic Broccolini

It’s actually not a younger version of broccoli, but rather a natural hybrid between regular broccoli and a plant called Chinese broccoli. My family prefers it to broccoli and since it takes less time to cook, I make this at least once a week. It has longer, thin stalks with small florets and only needs a few minutes to cook. I make this side dish at least once a week – even my toddler eats it with no complaints!

The best part, it’s healthy and ready in under 10 minutes so if you’re cooking for the holidays or just a meal for your family and need an easy side dish, this is it! You can double it or halve it as you need.

2 bunches broccolini

6 cloves peeled garlic, sliced thin

1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

kosher salt

pinch red pepper flakes (optional)



Trim about 1 1/2 inches off broccolini stems and discard. Slice the brocolini in half lengthwise.


Bring pot of water to a boil. When boiling, add broccolini and cook 2 minutes. Quickly drain and run under cold water to stop it from cooking.

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the oil and garlic and cook until golden, about 1 minute. Add the drained broccolini, season with kosher salt to taste and red pepper flakes (optional), and cook 1 minute, or until heated through.
