This is a very simple side dish but also a very versatile one. You can serve this with anything from chicken breasts to rib-eye steaks to horseradish fish dishes to roast beef.

You could also serve this piled on top of a bowl of rice, quinoa or any cooked grain. A squeeze of lemon at the end would also be nice. 

You can also use broccoli in place of the broccoli rabe. Broccoli rabe is a bit more bitter than regular broccoli, but it provides a nice foil for richer dishes. 


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 16 ounces sliced mushrooms, such as shiitake, cremini, or button

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 3 cups bite-size pieces broccoli rabe

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil.

  3. Add the mushrooms and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and sauté for about 10 minutes until the liquid has evaporated and the mushrooms have turned nicely browned.

  4. Add the broccoli rabe and red pepper flakes, and sauté for another 8 minutes or so, until the broccoli rabe is crisp tender.

  5. Taste, and adjust seasonings as needed.

  6. Serve hot and enjoy!
