Broccoli Raab is a new vegetable variety for us here at the farm. We started growing it for the restaurant as it is a delicacy and is on the top of our chef’s winter wish list. Luckily for us, we have a bounty of this amazing mustard plant and have the ability to offer it to our wonderful customers.
The whole plant is used in the cooking process, however the Florettes are the most sought after mainly for the amazing broccoli-like crunch and texture.
Stir fry the flowers and leaves with some garlic, onions or leeks over low heat with some butter or olive oil and presto! You’ve got a wonderful side dish that could be served in a fine restaurant.You can be sure that you’ve never had mustard plant taste this good!
