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.
