Healthy Broccoli Rabe With Pine Nuts

Garlicky and nutty broccoli rabe. You can use normal broccoli if you wish, but broccoli rabe is more delicate and more suited for combination with pignoli, in my opnion.

    Yummy! This recipe is simple & the result is tender and delicious. Now my husband is a fan of this healthy vegetable--he'd always found it to be bitter. This will definitely become a regular side dish at our table.

    Very good! Be careful to watch the pignoli when toasting (I over-did the first batch). I added some red pepper flake and a bit more black pepper. After tossing all finished ingredients I felt it needed a dash more olive oil.

    Easy, quick and delicious...my favorite type of recipe! I used a 12 oz. bag of broccoli rabe from Trader Joe's and cooked in the microwave, according to their directions. Then followed RedMeatGirl's directions from step #4. I didn't add salt but did add lots of fresh, coarsely ground pepper, which gave it quite a zip. We loved the nutty addition of pine nuts. Thanks for posting this RMG, it's going to be a regular in our house :)

    I found this recipe after my husband decided (today)in the grocery store that he wanted to try broccoli rabe. Sure, I said, without a clue how to cook it. This recipe is simple and tasty!
