Garlic Roasted Broccolini
I like trying different things with veggies to bring out their natural goodness. Roasting is a favorite of ours, so I thought I would make this simple Garlic Roasted Broccolini. Man, was this roasted broccolini recipe good, we all raved over it. Roasting broccolini in the oven brings out a nutty flavor to it.
I know sometimes broccolini isn’t always easy to find, not all grocery stores carry it and it can be a little pricey but this made the best side and it couldn’t have been easier.
The garlic flavor infused so nicely throughout the broccolini. The olive oil crisped up the edges and gave it a little crunch. The Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper added the right zing. This dish could not be simpler yet tasting so fantastic!
When broccoli or broccolini is cooked correctly it brings out a gorgoues green color to that makes it so pretty to serve. If you enjoy this recipe you have to check out our Spiced Roasted Cauliflower, another dish that is very popular on our site.
How to Roast Broccolini in the Oven
This dish would be an excellent side to a great beef dinner, roast or steaks. It would also marry to fish, chicken and pork nicely. I like to add in a different veggie every now and then and therefore keep things fresh for our family meals!! No one wants the same veggies over and over again!
Did you know that broccolini can be also called Brocolette, Sweet Baby Broccoli, Asparation and Brocoletti. I have only seen it by broccolini but that is interesting. Have you seen it called anything else before?
It is also good to know that broccolini was developed as a natural hybrid rather than being genetically modified.
Try this recipe on for size and I hope you like it as much as we do. It is the best way to do broccolini and so simple too!
