Do you ever have days where you get home from work, exhausted, and can barely muster up the strength to pop a meal in the microwave? Unfortunately, that happens to me quite often. And as much as I'd love to live on frozen meals, I know that I shouldn't, so I'm constantly on the hunt for quick and easy recipes. Sesame soy broccolini is one of those recipes.
Never had broccolini? In my mind, broccolini is like a cross between asparagus and broccoli. It doesn't taste like asparagus, though - it's just very "stemy."
- Broccolini (I buy it in shrink wrapped packages at Whole Foods)
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- Garlic - as much as you can handle
- 1-2 tablespoons soy sauce
- Trim broccolini - similar to how you'd trip asparagus. Cut of the ends and cut each step into manageable/eatable pieces
- Finely mince garlic.
- Put broccolini, garlic, oil, and soy sauce into a skillet. Cook on high or medium high heat until slightly wilted. (not too wilted! they cook pretty quickly!)
Start to finish, you can whip up a batch of broccolini in less than 15 minutes. It's a quick and tasty addition to almost any meal.
