Roasted Broccoli Rabe with Garlic

Broccoli Rabe roasted with chunks of garlic and oil and a touch of crushed red pepper flakes.

Broccoli Rabe, otherwise known as rapini is a popular vegetable in Italian and Chinese cuisine. It has a slightly nutty, bitter flavor, and it is a good source of vitamins A, C and K, as well as potassium, calcium and iron.

Toss it with pasta, pecorino romano and chicken sausage and you have a wonderful meal. Blanching before roasting mellows the bitterness a bit, adding red pepper flakes gives it a nice little kick. This shrinks to almost half its size when cooked.
