Spicy Lemon Broccolini
- 1 bunch broccolini
- olive oil or sunflower oil
- 1 tsp butter (I used grass fed!)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tsp ground coriander
- a pinch or two of crushed red pepper
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- chopped fresh herbs (I used parsley & thyme)
- salt & pepper
- couscous (optional)
Cook couscous according to package directions.
Once the garlic starts to brown a bit, add your broccolini, season with salt & pepper, coriander, and crushed red pepper. Squeeze the lemon juice in the skillet and add the red wine vinegar. Add the fresh herbs.
Give everything a good stir. The broccolini should cook up pretty fast - once it starts to char just a bit, take it off the heat.
Plate the couscous and add the broccolini on top. Enjoy!
I had leftover couscous, so the next night, I made the same dish but with halved Brussels sprouts. This time I tossed the couscous in the pan with the Brussels so it would all heat up together. Added a side salad, and had another delicious and easy meal. This is definitely something I will go back to time and again.
