Broccoli Rabe is an Italian vegetable that has a somewhat bitter flavor. It’s also known as broccoli rape, broccoli raab and rapini. It’s actually a relative of turnips, not broccoli. The vegetable probably descends from a wild herb, a relative of the turnip, that grew either in China or the Mediterranean region.
The flavor of Broccoli Rabe has been described as nutty, bitter, and pungent. It is a source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as potassium, calcium, and iron. Store broccoli rabe in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
A common preparation involves sautéing it with garlic over low heat for 10 - 15 minutes.
