Recipe

Broccoli Rabe with Raisins and Pine Nuts

Times

  • Prep Time : 5 min
  • Cook Time : 5 min
  • Ready Time : 10 min

Servings

4

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe (rapini), stems trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • pinch dried crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • Salt
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Directions

Cook the broccoli rabe in a large pot of boiling salted water until crisp tender, about 1 minute per bunch. Transfer the broccoli rabe to a large bowl of ice water to cool. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid.  Strain the cooled broccoli rabe and set aside.

Heat the oil in a heavy large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes, and saute until the garlic is golden, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add the broccoli rabe and toss to coat. Add the reserved cooking water, the raisins, and cook until the broccoli rabe is heated through and the stems are tender, about 4 minutes. Season with salt, to taste. Just before serving, toss the mixture with the pine nuts.
