Obligatory yet oh so delicious date night veggie side dish recipe coming your way: quick and easy lemon garlic broccoli!
Are you aware of broccolini? Because I swear, once you've had it WHY would you ever go back to broccoli??? You don't have to cut it into florettes, and you can just dump it into a skillet to cook for about 10 minutes. No sheet pans, no oven preheating, nothing.
Honestly why has it taken me this long to cook it at home? Broccolini always seemed like something that was reserved for swanky restaurants, which is truly just ridiculous when you think about it. It has a better flavor profile than broccoli and needs barely 10 minutes on a stove top to cook so of course that's a fine dining chef's preference.
You may have also guessed that this will be our Valentine's Day side dish, alongside some mushroom fettuccine alfredo and some seared scallops to start because let'sgetfancy. Oh and don't forget that señorita margarita!
PS. Stay tuned this weekend for this year's Valentine's Day dessert! Until then, scroll down for the quick and easy zesty lemon garlic broccolini 💚.Print
