Broc on with the perfect brassica: broccolini!

Wednesday, April 6, 2022

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). 

Broc on!
