with it. Any ideas? TIA!"
Broccoli Rabe can be used like most hearty greens. Here is a
STIR FRY GREENS WITH GARLIC with basic oriental seasonings.
4 large clove garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
1 pound sturdy greens (Broccoli Rabe), sliced diagonally in
one-two inch widths
1 red bell pepper, seeded, sliced in 1/4 inch strips
1/2 cup sliced celery
1 Tbsp soy sauce or to taste
Several drops sesame oil or to taste
1 tsp sesame seeds
Chili paste (optional) to taste
Combine soy sauce, chili paste and sesame seeds in small bowl
and set aside. Prepare all vegetables. Heat a non-stick wok or
skillet over high heat and add sesame oil drops then your
garlic and ginger. Reduce heat to medium high, stir for
30 seconds. Add the vegetables and stir until the greens are
wilted, about two minutes. Add the soy sauce mixture, stir
and cover immediately. Steam for another 3 minutes until crisp.
Serves two. Enjoy!
