Broccolini is one of my favorite vegetables to eat. Quick to make, slightly sweet, and crunchy, you can enjoy it on its own or as a side to the main dish.

  • 1 bunch of broccolini
  • 3-4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp gochugaru
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 lemon
  • Step 1 Wash broccolini in a bowl of water to clean away any residual dirt. Pat dry with a paper towel or clean kitchen towel.
  • Step 2 Prep the broccolini by slicing the stalks into bite-sized pieces or slice it down the middle to quicken the cooking time. Mince garlic and slice the lemon into quarters.
  • Step 3 In a pan, heat up the olive oil. Add the broccolini to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, mixing it up every minute. Add garlic, more olive oil, a pinch of salt, gochugaru, and black pepper. Cook for about 2 more minutes or until it is lightly charred and displays a deep green color. Transfer to a plate and add the juice of a lemon. Serve immediately and enjoy!
  • Step 4 Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Enjoy within 1-2 days.
