Recipes | Broccoli Rabe with Red Pepper and Sesame Seeds

Broccoli rabe packs a flavorful and nutritious punch.

Broccoli Rabe with Red Pepper and Sesame Seeds

Rabe, raab, rapini – this green cruciferous vegetable goes by many different names. Though broccoli is in its name, broccoli rabe is more closely related to turnips. The leaves are bitter and have a similar taste to turnip greens. Like any member of the cruciferous family (think Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale), broccoli rabe is packed with nutrients. It’s high in vitamins A, C and K, potassium, calcium and iron. Whatever you want to call it, this is sure to be your new favorite dish.

2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 pound broccoli rabe with the ends trimmed and sliced into 3 inch pieces
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and sliced thin
2 tablespoons soy sauce or tamari
2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Heat a large skillet. Add sesame oil, broccoli rabe and red bell pepper. Sauté until tender, about 4 to 5 minutes. Dress with soy sauce or tamari and toss in sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy.

Makes 3-4 servings
