This week’s broccoli rabe from Pedersen Farms is looking really nice.
Use exactly as you would Broccoli – steam, roast, braise, sautée, and let your taste buds appreciate the difference
Broccoli Rabe is a bitter, zesty-tasting broccoli-like vegetable. Like the Chinese broccoli and broccolini that it resembles, broccoli rabe has long, tender stems that are topped by broccoli-like florets and a profusion of delicious leaves. It is prized in Italy, where it is known as broccoletti di rape or broccoletto, and it is becoming increasingly well-known in the United States thanks to its reputation as a great source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as potassium, calcium, and iron.
Storage: Wrap in a wet paper towel in a plastic bag in the crisper.
