The holiday season is here! During this time, turkeys, ham, roasts, and desserts tend to take centre stage. However, why not add more vegetables to round out the meal, and take advantage of seasonal fresh produce.

Our favourite vegetable to add to the holiday table is Broccolini®. There’s no prep required, and it’s such a versatile ingredient that can be used for sides, salads, platters and more. Plus it’s absolutely delish!

Here's a roundup of our favourite Broccolini® recipes for the Christmas season – there’s a bunch of vegetarian as well as vegan options to suit everyone.
