Family Food

I call it the all-in-one mashed potato. Why? Besides the large contribution of carbohydrate from potato itself, this wholesome mashed potato is also served with corn, carrot and broccolini. I was first introduced to broccolini when a vegetable seller at wet market told me about it. The outlook is as if a marriage between broccoli and kai-lan. The beauty of this green is all parts are edible from the floret, leaves to the stems. A popular dishes in Japan particular in spring, it is usually prepared by steaming, sauteeing or stir-frying, the vegetable is sweet and crispy. It is also a good source of vitamin C, vitamin A, calcium, folate and iron. Personally, I prefer it over broccoli but the price is slightly on the high side.
