Rapini is also known as Broccoli Raab, Broccoletti, Broccoletto,
Broccoli di Rape, Cime di Rapa, Rappi, and in Naples, Friarielli. As part of the cabbage family, it is related to, but its flavor is
sharper than, broccoli. Rapini is generally used as cooking greens but
can be enjoyed steamed, grilled and sautéed. A quick, favorite recipe is
simply to sautéed with garlic in olive oil and season with some gourmet
salt. The flavor is slightly nutty with a nice bitter component.
