Easy Broccolini Cheesesteaks are a delicious, vegetarian sandwich that is bursting with flavor!

A couple of years ago I visited Philadelphia. 

Such a great city with lots of history, culture, and delicious food. And when I say delicious food, I’m of course talking about the Philly cheesesteak. 

Thick hoagie style bread stuffed with shaved beef, peppers, and topped with cheese. I mean, what could be better? 

Well, I wanted to create that nostalgia, but on the healthier side. These Easy Broccolini Cheesesteaks are packed with roasted broccolini, a rich bolognese sauce, and of course, provolone cheese. I promise you won’t miss the meat. 

Ready to give them a try?

Tips for Making Easy Broccolini Cheesesteaks:

1. Broccolini. If you’ve never heard of broccolini it’s basically a hybrid of regular broccoli and Chinese kale. Broccolini has long stems and smaller florets compared to standard broccoli. You can roast, saute, grill, etc. broccolini. It’s a super delicious and easy vegetable to prepare.

2. Red Sauce. This is where you can use whatever kind of marinara sauce you want. I love Rao’s sauces and so for this recipe I used their jarred bolognese. 

3. Hoagie rolls. If you can find rolls that are about 8-inches long that would be great. This way you can stuff the broccolini inside to create the look of a Philly Cheesesteak.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I can’t find broccolini at the store?

I would use regular broccoli instead! Just cut the broccoli into florets and roast the same way. 

Can I make this low-carb?

Absolutely! You can serve the broccolini on a platter with the sauce and melted cheese on top and it would be amazing!!
