Not a fan of broccoli? Try broccolini! A cross between broccoli and Chinese broccoli (also known as Chinese kale), broccolini has a milder, sweeter taste than broccoli with similar nutritional benefits. A member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, broccolini exhibits anticancer, anti-diabetic and anti anti-microbial properties and contains sulforaphane, a powerful antioxidant.

Selection Process

Look for vibrant, green, organic packages or bundles of broccolini. Stalks should be long and thin, with a much shorter cooktime than regular broccoli.
