Broccoli Rabe with Garlic and Hot Pepper

Print Email

2 bunches of broccoli rabe.

Trim and wash and dry. 

Heat three tablespoons of olive oil in a heavy frying pan.  when hot add coarse red pepper (like pepper flakes), just a pinch or so, and a finely chopped garlic clove or two. 

Stir once or twice then add broccoli rabe and season with a little salt.

Cook until tender, this should take about 6 minutes, but might need more depending on the rabe.

Drizzle with a little extra olive oil once it’s in a serving bowl.
