What is broccoli rabe? If many of you don't know what broccoli rabe is, it's a green vegetable. It's known especially in Naples, Portugal and Spain. It has many spiked leaves that surround clusters of green buds that resemble small heads of broccoli. Small yellow edible flowers may be blooming among the buds. The flower is described as nutty, bitter and pungent.
