Crispy Broccolini

Broccolini is a staple in my house and I've made it every way you can think of — but this is our favorite way to eat it. Roasting for such a long time turns the stalks crunchy and verdant like kale chips. After you've mastered the basic recipe, try adding garlic cloves, lemon zest, or red pepper flakes.

Yields two servings.

Ingredients:

  • 14 - 16 ounces broccolini
  • 1½ teaspoons large-flake sea salt such as Maldon
  • ½ teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 1½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim the bottom two inches from the broccolini.
  2. On a baking sheet, toss all ingredients and flatten into a single layer.
  3. Roast 20 minutes without touching.
