Garlic Butter Sautéed Broccolini

I knew I would be treating my husband and myself to a filet mignon dinner this week, and I needed a good side dish to go with it. I wanted it to be something green and my go-to grilled asparagus seemed too boring. This broccolini recipe jumped out at me. It’s something we’ve never tried, but we both like broccoli. Plus it isn’t seasoned too much, so it didn’t sound like it would overpower the steak. Perfect!

The Ingredients

I had no idea what broccolini was until I read this recipe (it’s a hybrid of 2 varieties of broccoli). Thinking it was something unusual, I was prepared to have to make a special trip to find it, but it turned out to be available at my local grocery store. I had no idea! It was sold by the bunch for about $4. I only bought 1 bunch as it looked like just enough to serve 2 people.

The Process

I love an easy recipe, and this recipe didn’t disappoint. It took me all of 12 minutes to prep and cook, just slightly longer than the 10 minutes listed in the recipe. I had some difficulty peeling the garlic cloves, so the prep work took 7 minutes instead of 5. Otherwise, the directions were easy to follow, and everything went very smoothly.

You’ll need to toss the broccolini in the butter and garlic, so be sure to use a large skillet or things will get messy. And don’t worry about the amount of garlic. It looks like a lot, but most of it stays in the pan when you remove the broccolini.

This broccolini recipe was a Pinterest success! It’s not as bitter as broccoli, and even the stems were tender and tasty. It’s a quick recipe with simple seasonings that enhance the flavor of the food instead of covering it up. A small pat of butter, fresh garlic, salt, pepper, and a squeeze of lemon juice are all that’s needed. Broccolini will become a regular side dish for me!
