Also known as broccoli rabe, a vegetable that is a related to the cabbage and turnip. This leafy green has long stalks scattered with clusters of tiny broccoli-like flowers.

I love broccoli rabe. I actually haunt my local Whole Foods hot food bar looking for their sauteed broccoli rabe with garlic and red chili flakes. Michichan - you can do really anything with it. I prefer to either go italianesque adding minced garlic and red pepper flakes and a wee bit of olive oil or Asian with soy sauce, a touch of Asian five spice powder, fresh ginger, and chili flakes. I like the broccoli rabe al dente.

I love broccoli rabe with farfalle pasta. Brown some minced garlic in a skillet, add broccoli rabe, when wilted add a can of chicken stock, cover and cook for 15 minutes. Add cooked farfalle pasta to broccoli, one ladle of pasta water and grated cheese. Mix and serve. Enjoy!
