Garlicky Broccoli Rabe

READY IN: 18mins
Recipe by Abby Girl

I love my veggies, so I do make this one often. Boiling the broccoli rabe helps remove some bitterness before it's sautéed in garlic-infused oil. If you like it hot, double the amount of crushed red pepper.

This was my first time cooking Broccoli Rabe and it turned out really well! I followed the recipe exactly and agree with TasteTester, that some might need a shorter boiling time. I will likely use a little less salt next time. Overall, a very flavorful recipe and the bitterness is truly reduced by boiling. Thanks!
