By: Kara Parnell Have you tried broccolini? Think of it as broccoli's slightly cooler little sister. Broccolini, sometimes called baby broccoli, is actually a hybrid of broccoli and gai lan, or Chinese kale. Many describe the flavour of broccolini as a blend of asparagus and a milder tasting broccoli. With it's long, slender stalks, and smaller florets on top, broccolini is excellent raw, and cooks in just a few short minutes. Brocccoli has a lot going for it. It's fun to say, it's pretty adorable, it's delicious, and it packs a nutritional punch with loads of nutrients, including potassium, folate, calcium, and iron. This simple recipe for Ginger and Garlic Broccolini with Pepitas, is such a brilliant combination of flavours and textures. The garlic, ginger, and liquid aminos, bring some seriously tasty Asian flavours to this mild and tender veggie. The pepitas, toasted golden and crispy in the sesame oil, add the perfect contrasting crunch. It's fast, it's simple, it's exciting, and bursting with flavour. Have you tried broccoli?
