Crispy Buttery Broccolini

5 from 3 votes
By Rachael DeVaux
Cook: 10 minutes


  • 2 bunches broccolini
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1-2 tbsp ghee
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  • Prep the broccolini. Wash, then trim the ends, slice the thicket stems in half lengthwise (top to bottom).
  • Heat a medium to large skillet over medium heat (cast iron works great for crispy edges). Once hot, add avocado oil and ghee.
  • Add the broccolini and cook, tossing and covering to help steam for about 10 minutes, or until it softens and begins to crisp on the edges.
  • Add the sea salt to the skillet and toss until evenly coated, then serve with lemon wedges. Enjoy!

    Never tried broccolini and I’m not a fan of broccoli, however this is a 10/10!!! This will be a new staple veggie for me. Who knew this was THAT GOOD!
