This was another recipe that I found in my Bon Apetite magazine and have been meaning to make for awhile. It is so simple, and very healthy. I actually made something else for dinner, but was still hungry so I figured it was the perfect time to try this side dish. I’ve put the recipe below, with a few of my own additions.
What You Need:
2 bunches of broccolini
2 TBSP white sesame seeds
1/2 TBSP crushed red pepper flakes
2 TBSP oil (olive or vegetable)
1 TBSP sesame oil
1 TBSP white wine vinegar
3 cloves garlic (minced)
What You Do:
Boil salted water and add broccolini
Cook until crisp, about 3-5 minutes
While cooking, mix the oils, garlic, vinegar, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes in a small bowl
Drain the broccolini and run cold water over it, then drain and dry
Toss with the contents of the bowl
Add salt and cayenne pepper to taste
Messiness – There’s really not that much to this at all. I only cut off the ends of the broccolini, but there was no effort other than that. Also, if you use minced garlic from a jar, you save time and effort.
Simplicity – Along with the messiness, there is very little involved with this recipe, and takes only about 10 minutes at the very most to make.
Budget – Broccolini is fairly cheap right now, and you probably already have the other stuff. Sesame oil is a bit pricey, but I guarantee you’ll use it again (to make this recipe or this one
Delicious Factor – This is the healthiest and best tasting green veggie recipe that I’ve ever made. It was so easy and fast that I’ll guarantee you’ll make it over and over again.
