    Serves: 6 

    • 1/2 cup (125ml) extra-virgin olive oil
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
    • 3 sprigs fresh thyme, chopped
    • 2 portobello mushroom caps, cut into 1/2 cm pieces
    • 1 pinch sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 2 bunches broccoli rabe, ends trimmed and cut into 5cm pieces
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, or as needed

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Heat the olive oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Stir in the garlic and onion and cook until the onion has softened and the garlic begins to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the thyme and portobello mushrooms, then turn the heat to low. Season to taste with salt and pepper and cook until the mushrooms have reduced but are not browning, 30 to 35 minutes.
    2. Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Cover and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the broccoli rabe, recover and steam until tender, about 6 minutes. Once the broccoli rabe has cooked, toss it with the mushroom mixture and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese to serve.

    I modified this recipie to make it a pasta sauce instead of just a side dish - I doubled the amount of mushrooms and added 3/4 cup of chicken broth and mixed in (when finsihed) with a pound of penne. I worked great as the main dish on night 1 and a great pasta side on night 2.  -  07 Oct 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    1/2 cup of oil seemed like a lot to me, so I just used enough to coat the bottom of the pan, sauteed the onion/garlic, then added a little more before adding the mushroom and thyme. Serve with brown rice, it was delicious!  -  27 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This had good flavors but the store didn't have very good broccoli rabe or any broccolini so I used what they had but I felt like it was lacking because of this. I will try again with some good rabe or broccolini next time as again I felt the flavor was good.  -  05 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
