Broccoli Raab aka Rapini

Broccoli Raab aka Rapini

Description

Actually a kind of non-heading broccoli, rapini looks much like tiny bunches of broccoli on long stems nestled among spiky large leaves. A yellow flower or two may appear. Seriously aggressive in the flavor department, this deep green vegetable delivers a ferocious pungent-bitter taste. If given a culinary chance, fans become quite addicted to its extremely bold presence. Rapini is not to be eaten raw.

Pack Size

10 count Case

Applications/Techniques

Rapini cooks rapidly and can suddenly soften to mush, quick cooking is required to maintain this vegetable's delicate integrity. Steam, stir-fry, sauté, braise or boil. Blanching in boiling salted water mellows the flavor.
