Broccoli rabe is one of my favorite vegetables. I make it all of the time. It’s really easy to prepare, yet a lot of people don’t know how to go about it. So, I figured I’d show you just how easy it is.

I read an article recently that hailed broccoli rabe as one of the most nutrient-dense foods on Earth. It’s considered an anti-aging food, it reduces inflammation and it strengthens bones. This fiber-rich vegetable is also known for its anti-cancer qualities, stroke prevention abilities and it protects against Alzheimer’s disease. Combine this with the anti-viral and anti-bacterial nature of garlic and you’ve really got a powerful side dish!

Blanch the broccoli rabe in boiling water…

Broccoli Rabe With Garlic
(serves 4-6)

1 bunch broccoli rabe, about 1-inch of stems cut off and discarded
1 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
8 large garlic cloves, roughly chopped
sea salt

Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil.

Heat a large sauté pan over high heat and add the olive oil. Stir the garlic around in the oil for about 30 seconds.

Toss the broccoli rabe into the pot of boiling water. After 30 seconds, remove it with a slotted spoon, shaking off extra water, and carefully place it into the pan with the oil (be careful, the oil with spatter when the water hits it). Stir, with tongs, for about 2 minutes or until the stems are softened a bit. Do not overcook it. Season with salt and serve it with everything. Enjoy!

  • I will have to look closer in the produce dept for the broccoli rabe. I have not tried it. Thanks for the recipe, Stacey.

    • Julia Ann, broccoli rabe is actually my favorite vegetable. It’s also called “rapine”, so keep your eye out for both!
