If you are a lover of veggie greens then you will enjoy this, I also add in some crushed chili flakes for heat :)

This was simple and tasty, an easy way to vary the vegetable routine. I only cooked the rapini for about two minutes because I like it a bit crisp, and considering briefly quenching it in ice water next time, though it would risk cooling below room temperature.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut an X in the bottom of the stems and place into a large pot, cover with cold water and add in 1 tablespoon salt to the water; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Reduce heat to a low simmer and cook until tender.
  3. Drain the broccoli rabe over a large colander.
  4. Using a spoon push the rabe against the colander to release most of the moisture.
  5. Heat oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add in garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
  7. Add in the broccoli rabe and saute for about 12-15 minutes or until desired doneness.
  8. Season with salt and pepper.
  9. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese to taste if desired.
