Sauteed Baby Broccoli

This delicious vegetable, which you may see labeled as baby broccoli, broccolini, or asparation, is a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale. It has a slightly milder, sweeter taste than broccoli and a more tender texture.

    I like broccolini even better then broccoli because of it's tenderness. It is also good sauted in oil with some garlic and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice just as it's served. It gets cold fast so make it just before eating.
