Before we get to the recipes, there are some things you need to know about broccoli rabe. First of all, it’s chewy, just a little bitter and absolutely delicious. It’s also packed with all the nutrients that dark green cruciferous veggies are famous for: iron, potassium, calcium and all that good stuff. Plus, it’s versatile, visually attractive and it’s available throughout the fall to play around with in the kitchen. Grab a nice, big bunch at the farmers market or your local supermarket and try one (or all) of these broccoli rabe recipes before this vegetable’s no longer seasonal.
