Broccoli Raab

Brassica rapa

Twenty years ago, it seemed that no one, other than devoted Italian cooks, had ever heard of broccoli raab. Now, this Italian delicacy, which is closely related to broccoli, is being called for in a variety of recipes -- and for good reason. It has a more pronounced flavor than broccoli but does not form a large head like its more common cousin. Also, its leaves, stems, and heads are edible.

It's commonly added to pasta dishes or served on the side of meats and other entrees. To prepare raab, blanch stems in boiling water then saute in olive oil until tender.
