Easy Asian Broccolini

Posted by

If you love broccolini but have never tried making it before or never had it before but are curious, here’s an Easy Asian Broccolini recipe to try!   As you probably already know, Broccolini is a green vegetable similar to broccoli but with smaller florets and longer, thinner stalks. However, here’s an interesting fact you might not know –  Broccolini is actually a natural hybrid of Broccoli and Gai Lan (Chinese Broccoli)!

This is super interesting to me because I grew up with both Broccoli and Gai Lan as a common household dishes my mom made. So it is apparently no surprise I like Broccolini!  Apparently, it’s their secret (or not so secret) love child!

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Salt, as desired
  • 1 tbsp hot chili sauce (optional if you like spicy, I use a homemade spicy chili oil that has szechuan peppercorns)

Instructions

Fill a large skillet with water and bring to a boil. Add broccolini and cook for about 1 to 2 minutes or until bright green.

Remove broccolini from water.  I removed them with tongs and then put it in a colander to drain, but you can also use a strainer, or which ever way you like.  Easy Asian Broccolini

Heat sesame oil in the a skillet over medium heat.  Cook and stir garlic in the hot oil for about a minute, and then add the hot chili sauce if you want it spicy (this is optional).  Add the cooked broccolini to the skillet with salt as desired, and stir fry for about 2 to 3 minutes.
