Recipe by  

Graham's Broccoli Rabé is a great way to cook rapini (also known as broccoli rabé, broccoletti or friarielli). However, this method of cooking is versatile enough to be used for cooking tender stem broccoli (also known as broccolini), which is a cross between broccoli and kai-lan, Chinese broccoli.

How to Cook Graham's Broccoli Rabé

  1. Wash the broccoli, trim the stems and then cut an X in the bottom of the stems (this helps them to cook thoroughly). Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and add the broccoli. Cook until tender but still firm (about 5 minutes for rabé or 10 minutes for tender stem broccoli). Drain.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over a medium heat. Peel and crush (mince) the garlic and sauté it for 1 to 2 minutes in the oil. Stir in the broccoli and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Place the broccoli in a serving dish and add a little freshly-ground black pepper. Dust with Parmesan cheese and serve hot.

 
Graham GRAHAM'S HOT TIP:
If you want to 'spice up' your broccoli a little, you can replace the ground black pepper with a little paprika - but don't overdo it.

What a great way to cook broccoli. In fact, I used just ordinary everyday broccoli broken into florets and the taste was magical. Next time, I'll get some tenderstem broccoli and try that. Thanks for this.
