Broccoli rabe is a slightly bitter green with small, broccoli-like florets. Since I don't mind the bitter flavor, I'm not very motivated to bother to try to remove it, but this recipe reduces it somewhat.
1 bunch broccoli rabe
2 cloves garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp lemon juice
Cut off the stems of the broccoli rabe. Bring a pot of water to boil and simmer the broccoli rabe stems in it for 5 minutes. Remove from water and cool stems immediately.
In a large skillet heat the oil. Add the garlic for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add the broccol rabe and cook for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle in the lemon juice and season with salt. Serve.
