Broccolini is a cross between broccolli and gai-lan, a common green used in Asian cooking. The distinct florets grow out of crispy gai-lan like stems. Its flavor is sweeter and greener than broccolli and has a lovely tinge of bitterness.
This vegetable carries its own flavour and can stand up to the saltiness of the prosciutto and the pronounced tang of the vinegar.
