Broccoli raab is a cooking green which is primarily eaten cooked, and does not fall under a larger category (i.e. ‘brassicas’ as with kale and collards). Broccoli raab – also spelled rabe and known as rapini, is most similar to broccoli. It can even occasionally contains baby broccoli-like florets!
Wrap in a damp towel and store in the fridge. Broccoli raab stored this way will keep for 4-5 days.
Wash and remove any large, woody stems. They can be used similarly to mustard greens, and when sauteed with garlic and olive oil make a fantastic side to potato or rice dishes.
