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.


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


  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.
