Are you wondering what to do with all of those hard-boiled Easter eggs? If you want something other than egg salad, try adding them to broccolini for a change of pace. What is broccolini, you ask? Broccolini is similar to broccoli, but with smaller floret and longer, thin stalks.  It is a hybrid of kale and broccoli, to be more specific. This rock star vegetable is high in vitamin C and contains vitamin A, calcium, and iron. 

2 bunches broccolini (tough ends trimmed)
1 hard-boiled egg, chopped
2 Tbsp. whole grain mustard
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
3 Tbsp. olive oil
1 small shallot, minced
salt, pepper


  1. Boil trimmed broccolini in salted water until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.
  2. Drain, shock in ice water and pat dry.
  3. Whisk together the whole-grain mustard with white wine vinegar and then add in olive oil, shallot, and salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
  4. Drizzle mixture over the broccolini and top with chopped hard-boiled egg.

  • I added a bit of grated Parmesan cheese for extra taste. You may want to decrease the salt if you add cheese.

Yield: 4 servings
