Easy Rapini Recipe
Super simple, healthy and delicious rapini recipe, not even a recipe, but rather a few quick steps how to make this yummy green.
Have to admit, I discovered rapini only a few years ago. It was one of the many different greens that we didn’t grow back in Armenia, my motherland, therefore I had no idea how they cook or serve it. But me, as a huge lover of greens and veggies wasn’t shy to ask someone at a supermarket, who was purchasing rapini, to explain what green it is and how to make it.
I enjoyed the taste at the first try, light bitterness, slight creaminess . Just the kind of green I love to eat even daily.
Most importantly, cooking rapini, takes only a few minutes. Taste delicious hot or cold , can be made as a last minute appetizer. I always serve it with a side tomato basil salad. Watch on my YouTube channel how to make it, it’s so simple, I won’t be writing a recipe for that.
