Broccoli Rabe all over NYC!

Lifestyle

By: Candice Kumai

Hi Friends! I hope you caught my Broccoli Rabe NYC social media tour last week with my friends and farmers at Andy Boy! We visited some of the finest and most fun restaurants dishing up broccoli rabe on their menus!

First we visited Maialino in Gramercy and started the morning with their Polpetta di Fungi, a delicious mushroom and broccoli rabe patty served with crispy hash browns and a perfect fried egg. 

Our second stop was the bright and beautiful Rosemary’s in the West Village for their spicy Orecchietti with homemade sausage, broccoli rabe and fresno chili. YUM!

I chatted with Chef Wade on their gorgeous rooftop garden on Facebook Live about their stunning garden, Rosemary’s menu, and cooking with broccoli rabe.


Then a stop by Time Warner//InStyle’s downtown offices for a talk with Kim Peiffer at InStyle:

Great to catch up with my girlfriend about Clean Green Eats for summer, broccoli rabe, exercise and fitness, and all the ways to stay healthy and happy this season!

And finally, saving the best for last, a sit down meal with my sweet and talented friend:  Marc Forgione.

I joined him at his signature restaurant in Tribeca, Marc Forgione for a delicious feast of his Bell & Evans Chicken Under a Brick, served with Yukon potatoes, pan drippings, and the uber healthy broccoli rabe.

 

Watch below as my friend Chef Marc and I chat NYC restaurants, broccoli rabe, and more!


It was such a pleasure taking a Broccoli Rabe tour with Andy Boy and visiting some old and new friends who are using this incredible vegetable in their amazing menus! Hope you all enjoy!

Sweets

Pumpkin Mochi Tea Cake

The use of rice flour in this heavenly, aromatic, gluten + dairy-free tea cake makes it reminiscent of mochi, an amazing + sweet Japanese dessert!

Salads+Soups

Clean Soba 蕎麦,そば Noodle Soup

I grew up on delicious buckwheat soba noodles. We ate them with everything from a simple miso broth to tofu, fish, and veggies.
