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.
