  • 3 cups broccolini cleaned, tough bottoms (lower 1/3 of the stem) discarded
  • 1 zucchini sliced into rounds and then sliced in half (should be half slices)
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup onions chopped
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccolini to the pot and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes to blanch. Broccolini should be bright green, crisp, and tender.
  • In a sauté pan over medium heat, add olive oil, chopped onions, and zucchini. Cook for about 5 to 8 minutes, until onions have softened and are translucent and zucchini have cooked through. Add broccolini, dried cranberries, and garlic. Cook for an additional 30 seconds to a minute. Enjoy!

  1. I made this tonight with some walnut-crusted tofu for a protein and it was great. I love having a nice pile of vegetables on my plate.
