Garlic Infused Broccoli Rabe and Chickpeas

Recipe by  

"Great as an appetizer or a meal. I love broccoli rabe, so I usually do this as an entire meal. To add some variation to this meal, try cooking Italian sausage in a separate skillet then adding it to the mix when you add the chickpeas."

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli rabe, and cook uncovered until the stems are tender, about 5 minutes. Drain in a colander.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir in half of the garlic slices, and cook until browned, about 10 minutes. Remove and discard the garlic. Stir in the remaining garlic, then add the drained broccoli rabe. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes, and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in the garbanzo beans, and continue to cook and stir until the beans are hot. Season to taste with salt and black pepper before serving.

This was just OK! I was the only one out of five people who liked this. The two kids might have liked it if it wasnt too spicy for them.I made it exactly as written. It uses way too much oil. If I make this again I will probably cut the oil in half to 1/3 cup and skip the first browning of garlic step as I didnt feel it did anything. I would just add all 3 cloves of garlic at the same time as I add the broccoli rabe. As far as the flavor it really seemed to be missing something like 1 tsp of italian seasoning. If I make this again I will rerate it.

Chickpeas were too hard for this dish ... I prefer white beans
