Broccoli Rabe with Toasted Garlic

Serves: 4

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Shopping list:  

  • 1 pound broccoli rabe, ends trimmed
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar


  1. Trim off the tough ends of the broccoli rabe stems; cut the stems into 1/2-inch pieces. Coarsely chop the leaves; leave the small florets whole.
  2. In a large nonstick pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and sauté until lightly golden, 1 to 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the garlic to a small bowl and set aside.
  3. Add the broccoli rabe stems to the pan and sauté until the stems are slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon of the salt. Add the leaves and florets and sauté until the leaves wilt and the florets are tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.
  4. Stir in the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt, the pepper and the sautéed garlic.

Drizzle with the vinegar and toss to mix and serve.
