Broccolini is a cross between regular broccoli and Chinese kale. It has a milder, sweeter taste than broccoli. This broccolini side dish has classic Asian flavors like rice vinegar, soy, ginger, and sesame and is perfect with a stir fry.
Blanch broccolini in a pot of boiling salted water, 3 minutes. Plunge in ice water, then drain.
Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, orange juice, ginger, pepper flakes, and sesame oil.
Heat peanut oil in a sauté pan over high. Add garlic; cook 30 seconds. Add broccolini and cook to heat through, 3 minutes. Stir in soy sauce mixture; bring to a simmer and reduce by half. Garnish broccolini with sesame seeds.
