Adding this trio makes any green vegetable taste better: lemon, garlic, and a little olive oil. Try it with broccolini, Swiss chard, spinach, or plain broccoli.

Ingredients

cooked broccoli rabe

1 pound(s), trimmed of tough stalks, and coarsely chopped

olive oil

4 tsp

reduced-sodium chicken broth

½ cup(s)

garlic clove(s)

4 medium clove(s), minced

table salt

¼ tsp

crushed red pepper flakes

¼ tsp

fresh lemon juice

2 Tbsp

lemon(s)

1 medium, cut into 4 wedges (optional)

Instructions

  1. Put the broccoli in a steamer basket; set it in a saucepan over 1 inch of boiling water. Cover tightly and steam until barely tender, 3–5 minutes.
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet. Swirl in the oil, then add the broccoli. Cook, stirring, 1 minute; add the broth, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until the broccoli is tender but still bright green and the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Add the lemon juice and toss to coat. Serve with the lemon wedges, if using. Yields 1/2 cup per serving.
