No empty chairs but empty tables when you serve our rich side dish, Les MiseRabe, our homage to Les Misèrables.
Ingredients: 1 bunch broccoli rabe, 3-4 finely sliced shallots, 1 lemon’s zest, 1 stick butter (1/4 cup), salt & pepper to taste
Directions: In a pan on medium heat, add butter & sauté the shallots until translucent. Add lemon zest, salt & pepper, broccoli rabe – mix & cover. The broccoli rabe will shrink down a bit. In about 10 minutes, it should be done but try a piece first. Some prefer it a little crunchier whereas others like it softer. Plate and serve.
There’s nothing “miserables” about this broccoli rabe!
