Rapini, also known as broccoli rabe, is a leafy green vegetable that is packed with nutrition. With its distinguished bitter note, it is a great addition for adding depth to the flavour of your dishes. You may have seen this vegetable year-round in the grocery store, but keep an eye out this month until October for some locally grown rapini.
