Broccolini

If you have read my blog for any length of time, you know that I love roasted vegetables.  I tried roasting this broccolini to go with the Salmon and Orzo the other night.  I used the same flavor profiles in the Salmon and Orzo, and I think it work out nicely.

Two pounds of broccolini, washed, and dried off.  Place on a baking sheet (I line my with foil).  Sprinkle olive oil, salt and pepper.  Roast in a 400 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes until it is partially cooked.  Grate two cloves of garlic over the vegetables, and the zest of one lemon.  Bake for another ten-fifteen minutes or until they are tender.  Sprinkle lemon juice over before serving, and enjoy!

Broccolini is a hybrid of kale and broccoli, and to me, not as bitter as either individual vegetable.  Add in the lemon and garlic, this makes a wonderful side dish.  At least for me.

Blessings.
