What is Broccoli Rabe?
Though similar in appearance to broccoli, broccoli rabe is actually more closely related to the turnip. This veggie has long, thin and extremely fibrous stalks that are green. At the stop of the stalks are leaves and small buds that look like miniature broccoli crowns. Broccoli rabe is mildly bitter and green tasting. It pairs well with garlic, pasta, meat and eggs.
