My pick this week is broccolini. Broccolini is constantly growing in popularity and has become a staple in many households. The increased demand has seen many imitation products make their way onto the marketplace. The major difference between broccolini and the imitation products is that broccolini has stalks which are sweet and tasty to eat. Imitation products quite often have bitter stalks which can be unpleasant to eat. The ease of preparation is one of the reasons broccolini has become so popular. Prepared in very little time, simply steam for a few minutes, drizzle some good quality oil and some herbs and you have the perfect side dish.
