Easy Rapini

Rapini bunchAhhh Rapini.


A cousin of both broccoli and turnip, this green vegetable is an excellent source of Vitamins A, C, K , potassium, calcium and iron. Also an excellent source of deliciousness.


It is so easy to cook. Simply blanch in boiling water for one minute…


Then run under cold water to stop the cooking process and keep those leaves green….


Then toss with some garlic and red pepper flakes heated in oil.


It makes a lovely side dish…


or can be served cold in an antipasto platter, such as this masterpiece I threw together last night.

Antipasto masterpiece

Your momma always said, eat your vegetables. Well this tasty brassica will make it easy.
