Broccolini with Mustard Sauce

Broccolini may quickly become one of your favorite hot vegetables. What I like is that it's quick and easy to prepare without any trimming or cutting. It has a slightly sweeter, more delicate taste than regular broccoli and pairs up very nicely with this mustard sauce.


  • 170-200 g ( 8 oz) broccolini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1/3 - 1/2 cup milk
  •  2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire's sauce
  • dash of Cayenne or chili powder
  1. In medium pot, bring broccolini to boil in half an inch of salted water. Cook until just tender. About 3-5 minutes.
  2. In saucepan, melt butter, whisk in the flour, then the milk, mustard, Worcestershire, and spice.
  3. Cook, stirring, until it bubbles. Can be made ahead and reheated. Serve over hot vegetables.
  4. Serves 3-4


  1. The mustard sauce sounds like a great addition.

    1. Yes, definitely. I plan to use it on other things, as well.

  2. I've never heard of broccolini. It looks delicious. Do you
    know if Canada has this and where I would find it? (fresh, frozen?)
    Love your website.

    1. Yes, I live in Canada. =)
      I get it at Safeway and the only way I've seen it is fresh, but packaged on a styrofoam plate.
      Just ask/check at your grocery store.
