Definitely not a salad green, broccoli rabe needs cooking to round out its flavors. This rustic soup is an excellent way to do so. Add freshly grated Parmesan cheese to give this soup a more robust flavor.

Cook's Notes

Before you add the greens to the pot, clean them thoroughly. After cutting broccoli rabe, place it in a large bowl of cold water and agitate it to loosen dirt. Lift the broccoli rabe from the bowl (leaving dirt and silt behind) and repeat if necessary.

    So delish!!! Broccali Rabe was at my local Whole Foods and it made it into such a hearty soup. If you use rabe, be sure to use the salt sparingly... it can get very salty otherwise. Less is more! :) My husband had 2 bowls of this cause he loved it so much. Really easy to make!

    This was delicious! I tweaked a few things--couldn't find rabe at my local store so used spinach instead, stirring it in only for the final two minutes. Also added chopped fresh rosemary and sage at the end. A very satisfying, quick, and healthy soup!
