Simple steamed broccolini with tahini dressing is one of my favorite, quick and easy vegetable side dish to whip up at a moment’s notice. With steaming, the broccolini turns crisp and tender. It also becomes mildly sweet. You can choose your favorite tahini dressing to add flavor, a creamy sauce, and healthful fats—and I provide lots of dressing options to help inspire you!

The steamed broccolini that I’m sharing today is one of my most tried-and-true vegetable side dishes. I make it often for myself, but it’s also a dish that I’ve shared with friends.
This unassuming shade of green is a favorite among my friends and family.
Broccolini is a favorite amongst all.
