  • 1 bunch (approx 200g) Broccolini
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil SEE NOTE 1
  • 1/2 Lemon (zest and lemon juice)
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic


  • Cook the broccolini in a large pan of boiling water for 2 mins. 
  • Drain immediately and add to a bowl of ice water. (SEE NOTE 2)
  • Add the oil to a large frying pan and heat over a medium setting. Add the garlic and lemon zest and stir. 
  • Drain the broccolini and then add to the pan. Toss to coat in the oil mixture and cook for around 2 minutes. Squeeze the lemon juice over the broccolini and toss. Season and serve immediately. 


  1. You can replace the olive oil with butter if you prefer. 
  2. You can prep ahead to this stage. Emerge in the ice water and then drain, dry, cover and store in the refrigerator until needed. I often store for 2-3 days.
