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

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.

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.

Good basic recipe. A touch of balsamic vinegar, minus the crushed peppers that would drown out the other milder flavors, made for a delicious side dish. Thanks for sharing!
