  • 1 bunch rapini broccoli rabe, washed and separated into same sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 - 3 cloves of garlic minced


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.
  2. Once boiling add the large stemmed rapini and let cook for 2 - 3 minutes until al dente. Remove and place in colander under cold running water.
  3. Next, cook the medium stems for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Remove and place in the colander.
  4. Next, cook the small stems for about 45 seconds. Remove and place in the colander.
  5. In a large sauté pan, heat oil over medium heat and add garlic until fragrant about 30 seconds.
  6. Add all the rapini, toss and cook until nicely coated and rapini is hot and serve.


You can also add other YUMs to your rapini: chopped onion sautéed in the oil until translucent (5 - 8 minutes) before adding the rapini; 1 tsp. chilli flakes or 2 tbsp. lemon juice (and/or lemon zest) tossed in right before serving.

Also, feel free to blanch all the rapini all at once by timing additions, i.e. add large stems and wait 1 minute after adding the medium stems and then add the small stems a minute after.
