Super fresh broccolini is skinnier and more tender than standard broccoli and does best with this technique. It’s a handy side dish to throw in the oven while you’re cooking a pizza: they both roast at the same temperature.
Makes 4 servings
A couple of bunches broccolini
A little olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 425[dg]F. On a cookie sheet or roasting pan, mix together the broccolini, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Roast for 15 minutes or so, or until the broccolini is both brown and tender. If you let it go to brownish-black it will become too bitter.
