I used to think the correct way to pronounce Broccoli Rabe was RAW-BAY. I remember that every time my godfather pronounced it Broccoli ROB, I chuckled to myself. When I realized I was the one mispronouncing it, I decided to make up for my mistake by using it as key ingredient in numerous recipes!
Anyway, Potato/Potatoe, Broccoli Rabe is all sorts of delicious. This recipe a great red and green main or side dish to serve during the holidays.
I really love certain types of food and Thai dishes are at the top of my list. I decided to combine everything I love into one meal but kept each side separate and allowed guests to build their own bowls.
Feel free to experiment with veggies and toppings of your own, the key is in using fresh basil and coconut rice. The rest is simply up to your individual taste and creativity!
Some of my guests do not like spicy food but I would definitely recommend adding a bit of red pepper to the peanut sauce to give it a little “kick”.
I have made many, many batches of Cream of Broccoli Soup through the years but always used regular broccoli.
I had a some broccoli rabe in my refrigerator and decided to experiment with it. Since broccoli rabe has a less bitter and milder taste than regular broccoli, it was worth a bit of experimentation.
WOW. The soup was so unbelievably creamy and mild. I suggest you give this recipe a try soon.
For dinner you can serve alongside salad for a complete meal. Trust me, this soup is hardy so you don’t need any bread.
Please feel free to let me know how it turns out!
