Recipe Ingredients for Lemon Garlic Rapini

2 garlic cloves

1/2 tsp Kosher salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/8 tsp sugar
1 tbsp butter

1 tsp fresh lemon juice (half a lemon)

Recipe Directions for Lemon Garlic Rapini

  1. Wash the rapini then peel the stems and discard any bad leaves.

  2. Finely slice the garlic into thin slivers. Heat a large frying pan that has a lid over medium-high heat and add the water, salt, pepper, sugar, butter and garlic together.

  3. Once the water just begins to boil and the butter has melted, add rapini and cover, let steam for about 2 minutes. Then toss the rapini to fully coat it with the butter and garlic. Replace the lid and let steam for another 2 to 3 minutes.

  4. When the rapini has cooked through, squeeze the lemon into the pan and toss one final time. Serve immediately.
