The next time you’re trolling the produce aisle for a green vegetable, consider giving broccolini a try. Although it’s been on the market for several years, it’s still relatively new to the vegetable scene. Also known as baby broccoli or asparation, it’s a conventional (as opposed to bioengineered) hybrid of broccoli and Chinese kale (gai lan). Its sweet and mild flavor hints of broccoli. The entire stalk is edible and requires no trimming. I like to steam broccolini until it’s just tender (6 to 7 minutes) and then drizzle with salted lemon butter.
