Spicy Garlic Broccoli Rabe

"A very yummy dish I found in Cooking Light! If you like broccoli rabe, spicy and garlic...you'll LOVE this! Recommended pairing is potatoes and pork chops but I serve it with most anything! Alter the garlic and crushed red peppers to suit your tastes. We add lots more!"

    Made this as written last night. Very good. Even Mr. Picky had two servings.

    Nice simple dish, easy quick and great flavor. I didn't cut mine up, as I like the whole stem for the presentation. Caterer, I like that pretty presentation thing. Nice and easy. Thx!

    I like this recipe, it cooks the broccoli rabe perfectly. It has been a long long time since I have eaten broccoli rabe and I had forgotten how bitter it is!! This recipe lessens the bitterness of the broccoli rabe a bit so it is a good recipe to try if you're eating broccoli rabe for the first time! I love the fleur de sel to finish!! Thanks for the recipe!

    Let me start by saying I love Broccoli Rabe. This is a straightforward, simple recipe that works well with the finishing fleur de sel, it brings out the best of the broccoli rabe, garlic and lemon flavors.


I love to try new recipes and often try so many new recipes that I forget about all the great ones I've already made. My focus in cooking is to cook healthy and lower in fat without compromising the taste of the food.
