Broccolini is also known as broccolette, bimi, and broccoletti. The price look-up code assigned is 3277, or "baby broccoli." It is actually a cross between broccoli and Chinese kale.
To prepare broccolini, cut off and discard the bottom quarter to one-third of the stems. Very thick stems should be cut in half lengthwise before cooking.
Broccolini is tender and somewhat sweet, without the bitterness you might taste in regular broccoli or broccoli rabe.
A bunch of broccolini generally weighs approximately 7 to 8 ounces.
