This umami-rich vegetarian side dish features perfectly steam-roasted broccolini. By using the steam function of the Anova Precision Oven, the broccolini becomes tender but not mushy! Paired with an olive, caper, garlic, and herb tapenade, this crave-worthy recipe makes a perfect pair for a steak, chicken, or plant protein entrée. Note: This recipe will also work with standard broccoli. You may find that you need to increase the cooking time slightly.
