Different and delicious:bitter and salty and tart. Be careful not to overcook the broccoli rabe. I'd recommend blanching for only a couple of minutes. I'll be making this again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli rabe and cook until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, broil both lemon halves until lightly charred, about 5 minutes. Remove and cool. Heat the oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add the garlic and cook about 2 minutes. Squeeze 1 lemon half into the skillet. Add the broccoli rabe, olives, salt, and pepper and heat through, about 2 minutes.
  4. Serve, using the other lemon half, cut into wedges, for garnish.
