Broccoli Rabe with Raw Extra Virgin Olive Oil

March 28, 2015


My family loves Broccoli Rabe. It is one of our family staples. It's a little bit bitter, but when combined with Papa Vince's Raw Extra Virgin Olive Oil, it is simply out of this world. Below is the recipe and the video showing all the details on how to make it.


  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Active Cooking Time: 13-15 min
  • Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 1 bunch of broccoli rabe
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 medium onion
  • 4 Tbsp Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste




(1) Clean and chop broccoli rabe (omit only end stems and yellow leaves. The rest of the stems are delicious!).
(2) Peel garlic and chop it finely.
(3) Peel onion and chop it finely.
(4) Saute onion for 5 minutes in Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Use a deep pot that will contain 1 bunch of broccoli rabe.
