Rabe Login/Join

While sitting in a dermatologist's waiting and waiting and waiting room (He wants to replace my skin because I've gotten my original all wrinkled), I saw a recipe for something called a broccoli rabe. While I'm quite familiar with broccoli, I don't know what part of one is a rabe. Looking it up only gives me some Urban Dictionary crap. Can one you help?

Apparently broccoli rabe is a vegetable also known as rapini. Never heard of it myself.

So interesting, Geoff. I hadn't heard of it either. Here is a link about it. Apparently it isn't actually related to broccoli, instead it is closely related to the turnip.

Wow youse guys are so out of it. Broccoli rabe has been in our NYC-area stores for a decade.

I kind of like it, but it always seems to be prepared super-al-dente w/oceans of garlic...

Ah, Bethree, you ARE still with us! I feared that your recent illness might have rendered you too ill to check in here! As for me, you must remember that I reside in a place where they grow corn for hog food (the four-legged variety) or high-fructose porn syrup (for the two-legged hogs). They think cruciferous vegetables are ones Jeezus was nailed to. One must travel many miles to find a grocery store where they have fruits and vegetables that haven't been dipped in toxins from Monsanto or Dow or Bayer. Say, "bok-choy" around here and they think you're cussing in "Mexacun." So maybe you might cut me some slack? Wink

I am not a foodie, but my daughter and her husband is. I am sure she has heard of it.
