2 pounds broccolini
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/3 – 1/2 cup pine nuts, lightly toasted
- Steam the broccolini in a pot with a steamer basket or bamboo steamer, until crisp-tender, about 3 – 5 minutes. Drain immediately and put in an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Remove and drain on a towel.
- Heat oil in a skillet, add butter and melt. Whisk in lemon juice. Add the broccolini and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
- Add the pine nuts in the last few minutes of cooking and toss with the broccolini, combining well to heat the nuts through. Serve immediately.
