White Beans and Broccoli Rabe

Dish Type: Pasta, Risotto and Polenta


  • 1 medium bunch Broccoli Rabe (rapini), tough stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 3 cups cooked or 2 (15.5-ounce) cans Cannellini Beans or other white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon minced Fresh Rosemary
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper


In a saucepan of boiling salted water, cook the broccoli rabe until tender, about 5 minutes.  Drain and run under cold water, then coarsely chop.  Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat.  Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds.  Stir in the beans and the rosemary, then add the cooked broccoli rabe and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook, stirring until the flavors are well blended and the mixture is hot about 10 minutes.  Serve immediately.

Everything that Might Be Missing from Your Plant-Based Diet (and Nothing Else!)

complementI believe that plant-based is the healthiest way you can eat -- both for how you feel and perform in the short term, and for long-term health. But there are a few nutrients that are hard to get from plants, and I didn't want to take a whole multivitamin with so much extra that I'm already getting from my food. That's why I created Complement Plus, the perfect nutrient formula for plant-based athletes.

Complement Plus brings together, in one place, the essential nutrients that are missing from a reasonably diverse, whole food plant-based diet:
  • B12
  • D3
  • DHA/EPA Omega-3s
  • K2
  • Minerals like zinc, iodine, and selenium
It's everything that might be missing from your plant-based diet, with nothing extra.
