Broccoli rabe is first boiled to eliminate some of its bitterness, then it's stir-fried with an aromatic combination of ginger, garlic, and sesame oil. Serve hot or at room temperature atop an Asian noodle salad or alongside steaks or roast chicken.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook broccoli rabe in boiling water 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain and plunge into ice water; drain well.

Step 2

Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add broccoli rabe, ginger, and garlic to pan; stir-fry 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from heat; stir in sesame oil, salt, and pepper.

I used broccoli, because that's what I had on hand. I'm not crazy about broccoli - mostly I eat it because it's healthy, not because it's tasty. This was good! A nice side veg when you're making an Asian meal. Quick and easy to prepare and doesn't require a lot of exotic ingredients. Will definitely make again.

Yum! It's a bit of work with the ice water plunge when you’re orchestrating a meal with several other dishes cooking, but it's so scrumptious I couldn't care less. I've had to double the recipe because my honey will eat 2 or more portions himself.

I made it pretty much as described, but it seems like it is missing something. Maybe more sesame oil or crushed pepper.
