Steamed broccoli rabe with caramelized roasted garlic.


1 head garlic; roasted
1 bunch broccoli rabe; about 1 to 1 1/2 pounds
1 teaspoon kosher salt and freshly ground pepper; to taste
1 1/2 cups Water
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil; divided

Original recipe makes 4



To roast, cut a slice off the top of the head of garlic to expose the cloves inside the skin. Lay the head of garlic on aluminum foil in a small oven proof dish. Drizzle 1 tablespoon oil over the exposed cloves and cover with the foil. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees oven for 90 minutes.

Meanwhile leaving the broccoli rabe whole, peel the stems. Steam in salted boiling water for 3 or 4 minutes until tender. Immediately plunge into an iced water bath to preserve color and stop further cooking. Drain broccoli rabe and arrange on platter. Adjust final seasoning of salt and pepper.

Drizzle with 1 tablespoon oil and squeeze the cloves of roasted garlic out of their skin on top of broccoli rabe.

More water may be used for steaming the broccoli rabe for a milder tasting vegetable. [I posted this recipe.]
