Did you know that broccolini is like the rebellious younger sibling of broccoli?
While regular broccoli has thick stalks and large florets, broccolini is known for its slender stems and smaller florets.
It's like broccoli went through a phase and decided to become more "hip" and "trendy."
It's also an annoying overachiever by packing slightly more phosphorus, manganese, and calcium than broccoli – all vital for bone health. But it wins out in the vitamin A stakes, providing almost four times more than broccoli.
So, next time you see broccolini, just imagine it wearing sunglasses and listening to some cool music while its older sibling broccoli rolls its eyes in disapproval!
