Broccoli Rabe with Green Garlic

Recipe adapted from Ina Garten at foodnetwork.com

ingredients

1 big bunch broccoli rabe

2 tablespoons olive oil

all the green garlic from your box, sliced into very thin rounds (white and light green part only)

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

instructions

Cut off and discard the tough ends of the broccoli rabe and cut the rest into 2 inch pieces.  Heat the olive oil in a large pot.  Add the garlic and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 4 - 6 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and set aside.  Add the broccoli raab to the hot oil.  Add the red pepper flakes, salt and pepper and cook, covered, over low-medium heat for 5 - 10 minutes, turning occasionally with tongs, until the stalks are tender.  Add the garlic back to the pot, check the seasoning, and serve hot.
