Broccolini is a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale (gai lan), and it brings new elegance to an old favorite. Cooking is easy and fast, since you can eat the whole thing — just wash and go. Prepare and serve broccolini as you would broccoli — try sautéing in olive oil and garlic, simple steaming or even battering and deep-frying, tempura-style.
Best from October to April
- Olive oil
- Nutrients Aplenty: Broccolini is rich in Vitamins C (as much as an orange) & K, as well as folate, potassium & fiber, whilst very low in calories. Vitamin C builds collagen (needed for body tissue & bone), helping wounds heal quicker, and works as a powerful antioxidant
- Boosts Detox Abilities: Like its broccoli cousin, broccolini contains glucosinolate phytonutrients which supports the body's detoxification process
- Helps Regulate Blood Cholesterol Levels: Steaming broccolini may provide cholesterol-lowering benefits. Their fiber-related components bind more readily with bile acids in the digestive tract when they’ve been steamed, which may result in lower blood cholesterol levels
