I bought 2 bunches of broccolini and wanted to do something different. There are a couple of tweaks to a recipe I found. Its absolutely delicious.


  • 1 bunch broccolini
  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 lemon, zested
  • 1 tablespoon Fresh lemon juice
  • handful slivered almonds
  • pepper to taste

Step 1

Toast almonds but frying gently in a non stick pan for approx. 4 minutes. They are ready when they begin to go slightly brown. Put to the side.

Step 2

Blanche the broccolini in a large pot of boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain immediately then immerse in a bowl of iced water.

Step 3

Take your Saute Pan and melt the butter in it.

Step 4

Add lemon zest plus the garlic then stir.

Step 5

Drain the broccolini in a colander and then add it to the mixture in the pan and allow to heat for 2 minutes.

Step 6

Add the lemon juice plus pepper, then toss well before serving.

Step 7

Garnish with slivered almonds. Then serve immediately

Chef's Tips

I served it with the braised steak from this Chefs Toolbox website and also a mash that consisted of potato, pumpkin and sweet potato. When mashing I added some chopped red onion. YUMMO!
