Not too long ago when I was shopping at Whole Foods, I tasted the best vegan broccolini dish ever. It was simple and tasty. However, it was cooked in olive oil, but not overcooked – from what I could tell. Well, anyway, I decided to do a “closer to raw” version of the same dish – and it came out great! Try it for yourself. Here’s the recipe:
1 bunch broccolini (washed, with stems trimmed)
2-3 garlic cloves (peeled, and sliced thin or minced)
1-2 T EVOO
Sea salt and garlic powder to taste
dash of cayenne or squeeze of lemon (both optional)
slice broccolini into long thin strips leaving the flower-tops on. In a bowl or baggie, add the olive oil and the garlic, as well as the spices. Mix well, then add the broccolini strips and marinate for about 30 minutes to an hour. You can serve this dish just like this, or you dehydrate it for about 30 minutes to an hour until the broccolini and garlic is tender. I prefer it warmed up in the dehydrator. That’s it! Enjoy!
Sorry for the fuzzy picture…it’s the only one I had available at this time.
