Broccoli Rabe with Garlic and Almonds


Boiling the broccoli rabe beforehand reduces its bitterness. Toss in the pan with sauteed garlic and almonds to reheat.

  • 2 bunches broccoli rabe (about 2 pounds total), trimmed and cut crosswise into 2-inch lengths
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Working in batches, add broccoli rabe to water and cook until water returns to a boil. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a colander to drain. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add garlic and almonds; cook just until beginning to turn golden, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli rabe and toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve warm or at room temperature.
