Do you like broccoli rabe, also known as rapini? Many of my friends have been eating this rich green vegetable since they were little, but I have to admit, I never had it until I was an adult. Truthfully, I now love it! It is slightly bitter, but it is in the broccoli family, having tasty flowerettes of tender broccoli buds, leaves, and stems. It is very good for you and sautéed in garlic, it is delicious!
Look for this gluten free vegetable in the produce isle of your local supermarket and enjoy! Greens are full of antioxidants, iron, and chlorophyll for cleansing; broccoli rabe is an excellent source of nutrients.
It makes a wonderful side dish for any meal and is low in fat and calories.
It's fast and easy taking just 5 minutes prep; 5 minutes sautéing

|Eat everything except the coarse stem ends, but eat the stems|
