Broccolini with Pine Nuts

Broccolini with Pine Nuts


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


  1. 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.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet, add butter and melt. Whisk in lemon juice. Add the broccolini and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. 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.
