Difference between Broccoli and Broccolini
Broccoli and broccolini are two different vegetables. Broccolini is the hybrid of broccoli and Chinese mustard green (gai lan). It’s similar to broccoli in the sense it has florets, albeit much smaller. The stems is also longer and thinner, similar to gai lan. The texture and taste is more like gai lan than broccoli. Personally, I love broccolini more than broccoli.
How to Cook Broccolini
You can get broccolini all year round at any regular supermarkets, with its peak season from October to April. The best way to cook broccolini is a simple saute or stir fry as the cooking method retains its vibrant green color and amazing texture.
For me, Garlic Parmesan Broccolini is an easy and quick recipe that delivers amazing results. The broccoli is perfectly cooked, with garlic and topped with Parmesan cheese. Every bite is a nice crunch and the Parmesan cheese adds a nice nuance to the vegetables.
Serve Garlic Parmesan Broccolini as a side dish to your meat, chicken, or pasta main dish. You might love it better than broccoli. Enjoy!
