As you can see, it’s mommy tested and Ava approved!
1 1/2 pounds broccolini (2 bunches), ends trimmed
4 tablespoons olive oil (divided)
1 teaspoon kosher salt (divided)
1 small sweet onion, finely diced
1/2 pound cremini or other mushrooms, thinly sliced
1/4 cup dry white wine or vermouth
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Grated Parmesan for serving (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 400°.
- Put the broccolini on a baking sheet, drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the oil, sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt, and toss to coat evenly, then spread in a single layer.
- Roast the broccolini, turning once with tongs, for 10 to 15 minutes, until crisp-tender. If the broccolini stems are not uniform in size, remove thinner ones as they are done. Transfer the broccolini to a platter. (The broccolini can be cooked several hours ahead of time and kept at room temperature.)
- In a large (12 inches or wider) frying pan, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, until starting to soften.
- Raise the heat to medium-high, add the mushrooms and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes. (The mushrooms will release a lot of liquid before reabsorbing it and browning. Be patient, as the flavor is in the browning.)
- Add the wine and cook for about 2 minutes more, until the pan is dry. Stir in the pepper.
- Spoon the mushrooms over the broccolini, then scatter some grated Parmesan over the top. Serve warm or at room temperature.
