Recipe from Real Simple Magazine, Feb 2010. They recommend serving it aside grilled chicken.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 6 dried apricots, sliced
- 2 tablespoons pine nuts
- 2 garlic cloves, sliced
- 1 bunch broccoli rabe, trimmed (about 1 pound)
- Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the apricots, pine nuts, and garlic and cook, stirring, until the pine nuts and garlic are golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes; remove with a slotted spoon.
- Add the broccoli rabe, ¼ cup water, and salt to the skillet and cook, covered, until the broccoli rabe is tender, 2 to 3 minutes; add the apricots, pine nuts, and garlic.
Broccolini was used in place of broccoli rabe because the latter was not good quality at the market. Made as directed with that substitution. Fantastic combination of flavors. Dates or even dried figs could easily replace the apricots. Reviewed for Veg Tag/March.
