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

Ingredients

uncooked broccoli

1 pound(s), or broccoli rabe, coarsely chopped

olive oil

1½ Tbsp, extra-virgin

minced garlic

3 Tbsp

canned cannellini beans

15 oz, rinsed and drained

fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp

table salt

tsp, or to taste

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

Instructions

  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.

Notes

Add red pepper flakes to taste.
