ALL ABOUT BROCCOLINI
If you can’t do broccoli, why not give broccolini, broccoli’s younger and sweeter cousin, a go? Here are three things you need to know about these slender tender stems.
What is it?
It’s a cross betweeen broccoli, or Calabrese broccoli, and Chinese sprouting broccoli.
Why eat it?
It’s pricier than broccoli, but there’s no waste. Plus it’s less dense so you’re less likely to overcook it, releasing that awful whiff.
Can I grow it?
Yes, it’s easy. You can buy ‘tender stems’ broccoli, which produces multiple shoots; they’re gorgeous, sweet and crunchy.
