Rapini with Garlic

(recipe, Eamon Molloy)

Ingredients

  1. 1 bunch rapini (washed and cut into 1 inch pieces)
  2. 3 garlic cloves
  3. 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  4. salt
  5. pepper
  6. red pepper flakes (optional)

Steps

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add some salt and place rapini in pot. Blanch for about 2-3 minutes. Drain, then submerge rapini in a bowl of cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain again and set aside.
  2. Heat the olive oil and garlic in a large saute pan over medium heat until the garlic begins to sizzle. Add red pepper flakes with garlic and oil if desired. Add rapini and turn heat up to medium-high. Stir rapini until heated through and coated with oil and garlic. Turn off heat, season to taste and serve.
