Fast, easy, healthy, and tastes good. What more could you want? Bring a pot of water to a boil and this is done before you can set the table. Broccolini also goes by the names of broccolette and baby broccoli at the market, but it’s really a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale. Dress it in many way with oils, herbs and spices.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. While it’s coming to a boil, trim the broccolini. When water is boiling, add salt, about tablespoon to 4-5 quarts of water.
Drop broccolini into boiling water for 2 1/2 minutes. Drain immediately and dress with salt, pepper, other seasonings and oil to taste.
Recipe notes - if preparing ahead of time, after cooking drop the broccolini immediately into a large bowl of ice water to "shock" it and stop the cooking process, then dry, cover well and refrigerate until needed. It will last 4-5 days in the refrigerator.
