The Great Veggie Experiment: Broccolini!

Found some broccolini at the grocery store this weekend. Everyone knows that I looooves me some broccoli, one of the very few veggies I really like, and I eat it pretty much every day.
I thought the broccolini would be like baby broccoli, but it’s not. It’s a cross between broccoli and a chinese cabbage. That said, it really seemed more like asparagus to me, especially in the texture of the stem. It was quite tender and had a more mild flavor than broccoli. The tops were pretty different, more textural and less soft than regular broccoli.
I roasted it, as I tend to do this as a standby for unfamiliar veggies since I like that cooking method. Worked really well. And a serving is huge for only 35 calories. I definitely would purchase this again.

    Thanks for posting this. I have always wanted to buy this but I was never really sure how to cook it or if it tasted good. I think I will try it next time it is on sale.
    Thanks again!
