Broccolini with Sesame and Ginger

Posted by Brette in Food

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.
