I love using broccolini in recipes. It’s mild taste and tender stalks make it perfect addition to an easy skillet meal.

Broccolini

Although broccolini looks like baby broccoli, it isn’t really broccoli. Broccolini was developed in Japan and is a hybrid between broccoli and Chinese broccoli (Chinese kale). It’s got long thin stalks and smaller florets than broccoli and can be sautéed, steamed, roasted or grilled.

If you can find broccolini, I would encourage you to use it in this recipe. If not, feel free to substitute broccoli in its place.

How To Cook Broccolini

Cook the broccolini quickly in a little salted boiling water. Drain it, pat it dry, then rough chop it and set it aside.

I use about 3.5 ounces (about 3/4 cup sliced) of smoked sausage. Mild Kielbasa, spicy Andouille, Bratwurst, or turkey sausage are all great sausage options to use.

I sauté the sausage in a little olive oil along with sliced garlic and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

Add in the cooked broccolini and heat it along with the sausage and garlic. When all of the ingredients are heated through, remove the skillet from the heat, stir in a touch of lemon juice and top with Parmesan cheese.

A wonderful 30 minute meal that tastes incredibly delicious!

Note: Since most packages of smoked sausage contain around 14-ounces. You can use the rest of the smoked sausage in other recipes such as Slow Cooker Red Beans and Rice For One or Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya For One. The smoked sausage can also be divided up into smaller portions and frozen to use later.

Also, broccolini is often sold in bunches that are around 6 ounces. I used about half (3-4 ounces). The remainder of the broccolini can be cooked and enjoyed at another meal or use it all if you want to double this recipe.

5 thoughts on “Broccolini With Sausage For One”

      1. I also love to stir fry kielbasa with large chunks of bell pepper, onion, celery, carrot and water chestnuts. I steam the veggies lightly and add to the sauted kielbasa chunks. Then I add some sesame oil and soy sauce. I serve it over cauliflower rice that I have heated up. This can be adjusted to whatever your taste is and I suppose chicken, shrimp or other meats can be used. I just like the kielbasa because it only needs to be heated up and caramelized a bit.
