Aka broccoli rabe or raab and not to be confused with broccolini. 


Rapini is notorious for its unique and slightly bitter taste. I honestly can't think of any other vegetable out there that tastes like it. Similar to broccoli, rapini grows a flower but you eat the entire plant (leaves, stem and flower). It is very popular in Italian, Portuguese and Galician cuisines and chalked full of vitamins A, C and K. 


Here's my favourite way to cook it:

The Harvest

June 22, 2017

1 bunch rapini, chopped

2-3 cloves or garlic, minced 

2 pours of olive oil

salt & pepper

Blanch rapini in boiling water for 2 minutes and then rinse immediately with cold water. Drain off as much of the excess water as you can.


Heat oil on medium-high in cast iron pan or skillet. Add garlic and cook until golden brown, stirring frequently so you don't burn it. Add rapini and sauté 3-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper

Delicious and so damn easy!
