Broccoli rabe with lemon and garlic
Cooked broccoli rabe
1 pound(s), trimmed of tough stalks, and coarsely chopped
Reduced-sodium chicken broth
4 medium clove(s), minced
Crushed red pepper flakes
Fresh lemon juice
1 medium, cut into 4 wedges (optional)
- 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.
- 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.
