Thursday’s Side Dish: Sour Broccoli Rapini

A nourishing accompaniment at dinner time

The Mixed Stew Crew likes preparing this unadulterated veggie dish. The blanching enhances the fresh and green flavor of broccoli rapini. Here is our recipe:

What you will need:

1 wooden spoon
3-4 quarts water
1 medium-sized bowl
1 stock pot
2-3 bunches broccoli rapini, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 colander or large strainer
3 tablespoons datu puti or cider vinegar
Pinch of salt

Cooking and Directions:

Fill stock pot with water. Bring to a rolling boil on high heat. Add broccoli rapini to hot water. Stir well so that leaves submerge and blanch for 3-5 minutes. Remove pot from heat and use colander to drain broccoli rapini. Then pour broccoli rapini into bowl. Add vinegar and salt. Then toss well. Serve immediately.
