Broccoli Rabe with Garlic and Red Pepper Flakes
Why This Recipe Works
We wanted to develop a dependable, quick broccoli recipe that would deliver less bitterness and a rounder, more balanced flavor. We found that blanching the rabe in a large amount of salted water tamed its bitterness. Then we sautéed the blanched rabe with ingredients that complemented its strong flavor, such as garlic, red pepper flakes, or sun-dried tomatoes.
