A fabulous five-ingredient vegetable side. Also great over pasta and rice, or as a crostini topping.


Cooked broccoli rabe

1 pound(s), ends trimmed, coarsely chopped

Olive oil

1½ tbsp(s), extra-virgin

Minced garlic

3 tbsp(s)

Canned cannellini beans

15 oz, rinsed and drained

Fresh lemon juice

2 tbsp(s)

Table salt

tsp(s), or to taste

Black pepper

pinch, freshly ground, or to taste


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Boil broccoli rabe until just tender, about 3 to 4 minutes; drain and set aside.
  2. Place oil and garlic in a large nonstick sauté pan; set over low heat. Sweat garlic for approximately 10 minutes, stirring frequently, keeping oil and garlic together in center of pan to avoid browning.
  3. Add beans to pan; stir well to combine.
  4. Add broccoli rabe and lemon juice to pan; toss to combine. Season well with salt and pepper. Yields about 1 heaping cup per serving.
