Broccoli rabe
Broccolini vs. Broccoli Rabe

"They're both green and leafy, but only one of these veggies is related to good old broccoli. Broccolini is the name of a specific broccoli-Chinese kale hybrid. It has a mild flavor, slim stalks and small florets. Broccoli rabe, aka broccoletti or rapini, a member of the turnip family, is leafier and has a sharper flavor than broccolini. Blanch, steam or sauté either veggie and serve with roasted meat, toss with pasta or add to soup. Try both and decide which one you like the best!"
