IngredientsServes 8 to 10
¼ cup (60 ml) whole hazelnuts
¼ cup (60 ml) sweetened dried cranberries, roughly chopped
3 tbsp (45 ml) chopped flat leaf parsley
½ tsp (2.5 ml) orange zest
salt, to taste
1½ lbs (750 g) broccolini

Place in a medium bowl and toss with cranberries, parsley, orange zest and salt. Set aside.

- Place frying pan back over mediumhigh heat, add oil, orange juice, garlic and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add broccolini and sauté until tender-crisp, about 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and spoon cranberry mixture overtop. Serve while warm.
