- Broccolini has a sweet, delicate flavor with a subtle, peppery
"edge", and the flavor is milder and sweeter when cooked. It is
completely edible, from flower to stem, and it's texture is less
fibrous than either broccoli or asparagus. PREPARATION -The stem does
not need to be peeled before being eaten. This is a strikingly
versatile vegetable with an endless range of culinary possibilities -
and its elegant, slim stems and attractive flower add a sophisticated
beauty to any meal presentation. STORAGE - Broccolini will stay
fresher if kept clean and cold. Place vegetables in your refrigerator
crisper. Set humidity control to "high". COOKING: Blanch - In shallow
pan, bring 2 cups of water to boil and add Broccolini. Let boil for 1
to 2 minutes until Broccolini turns bright green; drain. Rinse
immediately with cold water to stop the cooking process. Boil in
plenty of salted water for about 4 minutes. Drain and serve at once.
Saute with olive oil, yellow onions, and capers for an accompaniment
to meat or seafood Microwave - Rinse Broccolini and place in a
microwaveable bowl, cover. Microwave on "high" for 3-6 minutes Grill
- First blanch Broccolini: drain. Brush with favorite seasoning and
place on Grill. Tip: Wrap the flower in foil to prevent charring.
Steam - In a steamer, bring water to boil, add Broccolini. Steam until
Broccolini is tender, yet still crisp. Stir-fry Broccolini with a
selection of other fresh vegetables, and add a ginger soy sauce for a
light meal Add to: Couscous dishes, pastas, soups, tapas, chilled
crudites, vegetable chilis, stews, quiches, macaroni and cheese,
casseroles, creps, salads and quick breads. Dip the Broccolini in a
flour and beer batter and deep-fry for a crunchy appetizer (TM)

: If youre looking for something new and unusual, try broccolini! Its
a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale. Youll find its more tender
than broccoli, so you can even eat the stalks. Recipe by: Mann's Sunny
