Broc on with the perfect brassica: broccolini!
As the cooler months draw in, delicious, versatile broccolini is the perfect ingredient. Sweet and tender, it’s a bright burst on any dinner table. It’s also packed with nutrients including potassium for a happy heart, immunity-boosting vitamin C, and beta-carotene for healthy skin.
From 6 April to 3 May, our Community Partner Coles will donate 35c to the Foundation from each Coles Family Broccolini sold (to the value of $90,000).
Stephanie Alexander and Coles ambassadors and Masterchef alum Courtney Roulston and Brent Draper have created some perfect recipes to show off the versatility of this beaut veg:
- Stephanie Alexander’s Broccolini with Cashews and Coconut
- Courtney Roulston’s Broccolini Gratin with Lemon and Almonds
- Brent Draper's Broccolini Pasta with Garlic, Speck and Parmigiano.
