Rapini, Raab, or Rabe…  Whatever you call it, it’s delicious.

A relative of broccoli, (a green cruciferous vegetable), rapini resembles broccoli, but does not form large firm heads.  The buds, stems and leaves are edible, and delicious.  I love how it looks and tastes in a vegetable medley, but it is great as a stand-alone as well.  Here’s a great recipe that works for lunch, dinner, a side dish, or a healthy snack!
