Have you heard of broccolini? Have you ever seen Earth Balance’s bag of organic broccolini in Costco? It is in a fridge room – the reason I bring my sweater with me even in August. I find Costco makes broccolini affordable otherwise it is a bit pricey in other grocery stores so I would rather buy broccoli.
I decided to put 1 lb of leftover broccolini to use and make broccolini salad with fresh ataulfo mangos, cooked black beans, crumbled feta cheese, zested and juiced large lemon and freshly chopped mint leaves.
Can you smell it?
Broccolini belongs to broccoli family and has that taste of a cabbage and kale. It pairs amazingly with sweet fruit and salty creamy soft cheese. The same idea as with mango slaw.
I was hungry so I ate 3 servings for lunch. Needless to say by dinner time I felt a weeny bit uncomfortable in the tummy. So, take it easy and slow, people! Enjoy!
