This is one of my favorite ways to eat broccolini… roasted until it’s crispy and charred.
Oh my! It’s totally delish!
If you haven’t tried broccolini yet, it’s a hybrid between Chinese broccoli and broccoli. It has smaller florets, long thin stalks, and some small leaves. And, it’s edible from top to bottom.
I used extra virgin oil and roasted it at 375 for 20-25 minutes. Roasting at a lower heat (375) helps retain the integrity of the olive oil and give you a healthful and delicious dish in the process.

Here is the recipe. Enjoy!
- 2 heads of broccolini, washed and trimmed
- 2-3 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- Sea salt
- Parmesan cheese, grated
- Preheat oven to 375
- Trim one inch off the stalks of the broccolini
- Coat with olive oil and season with a few pinches of sea salt
- Place into a 9-13 stainless steel roasting tray
- Top with grated parmesan cheese
- Roast uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until stalks are wilted and heads are slightly charred
