Grilled Broccoli Rabe
In a rush to make dinner?
This quick and easy broccoli rabe recipe is packed with nutrition — and flavor!

Sometimes, you don’t have the time to cook fresh vegetables but luckily our grilled broccoli rabe is an easy alternative.

1 bunch broccoli rabe, tough lower stems removed
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Pinch of crushed red pepper

1 – Immerse the rabe in a large bowl of tap water and let it hang out for 10 to 15 minutes.

2 – Preheat the grill to medium.

3 – Drain the rabe but DO NOT shake off the excess water. Toss the rabe with olive oil and salt and lay it on the grill in an even layer.

4 – Cook the rabe for 3 to 4 minutes per side, turning as needed so all sides grill. The rabe should start to soften and char. If it starts to char too quickly, spray or shake a few drops of water on it.

5 – When the rabe is tender, remove it from the grill, drizzle with a bit more olive oil, and add a sprinkey-dink of salt and crushed red pepper. Serve hot or at room temp.

Yield: 4 servings.
