    Grilled Broccoli Rabe

    Although somewhat unconventional, grilling dark leafy greens like broccoli rabe is a fun way to add subtle smokiness. Here, we bump up the flavor by tossing it with a garlic-rosemary vinaigrette.


    • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, (about 1 pound), trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


    Step 1
    Preheat grill to medium-high.
    Step 2
    Cook broccoli rabe in a large pot of boiling water until bright green and barely tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Drain in a colander and rinse with cold water; drain well.
    Step 3
    Combine oil, vinegar, garlic powder, rosemary, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
    Step 4
    Grill the broccoli rabe, turning once, until tender and the leaves are just beginning to char, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Toss the broccoli rabe with the reserved dressing.
