Broccoli Rabe with Eggs & Goat Cheese

Broccoli Rabe with Eggs & Goat Cheese

I love Vegetables!  This wasn't always the case of course, the love came after lots of research and trial and error and learning how to cook them in a way that would bring out their best flavors and textures.  Then the love part happened.  So yes I love Veggies, but Broccoli Rabe, well that is at a whole other level for me.  It doesn't feel appropriate to say I'm in love with it, but I long for it, miss it when it's gone and savor every second when I have it (shhhh, don't tell my husband - ha!)   My kids actually giggle at the sounds I make when I eat it, which I imagine mirrors Bill Murray's dinner scene from What About Bob to some extent.  A food that is delicious, healthy and makes you laugh?  It can't be beat!

If you aren't yet convinced, check out the Health Benefits of Broccoli Rabe!

Broccoli Rabe sautéed in Olive Oil & Garlic

I always have it the same way - boiled in just a little bit of water until softened, then sautéed in extra virgin olive oil with loads of fresh grated Garlic and Red Pepper Flake - and it is always amazing.  Full warning here for newbies - this is a strong flavor, but it's not to be missed - you gotta try it!!  Ok, this is how I did it...

Broccoli Rabe with Eggs & Goat Cheese

So I made the Broccoli Rabe last night (as described above), so it was in the fridge ready to go!  I heaped 1.5 cups of it onto my plate (that equals 3 servings of veggies!) and topped with 2 Large Scrambled Eggs.  I crumbled 1-2 Tbsp of Goat Cheese on top, and drizzled all of it with 1 tsp of hot sauce.  Yum Yum Yum.  Insert my son's giggles here :)
