Broccolini with Carmelized Shallots
I really enjoy the taste of Broccolini and wondered how it would be with caramelized shallots and a bit of white wine. It was amazing, the carmelized shallots were a tasty addition and the wine gave it a sweet taste. All in all a successful experiment!
1 bunch of Broccolini, rinsed and woody stems removed (chopped into large pieces)
2 shallots sliced (I had two very large Shallots, use more if yours are small)
1/3 cup dry white wine
2 tsp olive oil
Fresh finely grated Parmesan
Place your olive oil in a non stick pan and add your shallots, cook them on medium heat until caramelized, this may take a few minutes, be patient and stir stir stir. Add more oil if needed.
Remove your shallots from the pan and deglaze with the white wine scraping up all the fond on the bottom of the pan
Add your Brocollini and put a lid and steam until it is tender, sprinkle with Parmesan and serve
