Broccolini and Onions

Hi All,

This gluten free/vegan broccolini and onions are a spicy little treat! Of course you could skip the kick if needed. I withheld the onions for my son’s plate.

I find the flavor of broccolini to be a bit sweeter than broccoli and more mild tasting. It is high in vitamin C and has folate, iron, calcium, and vitamin A.

Disclaimer: These portions are all just a guess. I don’t like to measure when it comes to creating in the kitchen. Please just let this be a guide for your own creation…

Broccolini and Onions

  • CUT and discard the bottom 1/3 of about 1 lb. of broccolini.
  • SAUTE 1/2 chopped onion in 1 tbsp. coconut oil with some sea salt until just about tender.
  • STIR in 2-3 chopped cloves of garlic and some red pepper flakes.
  • ADD broccolini continually stir until tender.

You could freeze the bottom half of the broccolini to make a vegetable broth later. Save almost any vegetable in the freezer and then when you have enough, add them to a slow cooker with water and some aromatics.

Broccolini and onions go with anything! So simple to make and with just a few ingredients make this dish sing in your mouth:)

Grateful Day – I am grateful today for the piano and my Mom trying to teach my stubborn butt how to play it. I regret not taking more lessons, but I love watching people play to this day. I still have my first piano book and can still read and play from it. I was teaching my son’s friend some basics and she was really good.

With spring in the air and a move in the near future, I am looking forward to getting settled into a new chapter of my life.

Have you tried making broccolini?

Thank you for listening!
