Broccoli Rabe with Poached Eggs

Here is a delicious, complete, and balanced meal that is so easy to make all in one pan. Broccoli rabe is available in most markets and is perfect for this dish with poached eggs. If you can’t find it, substitute spinach. Add salad and fresh fruit and dinner in minutes is ready.



  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 bunhc broccoli rabe, stemmed, washed, and coarsely chopped
  • 2 large eggs
  • to taste salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese


  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized sauté pan with slopping sides. Add the garlic slices and cook pressing on the garlic until it turns golden brown. Add the broccoli rape and cook, stirring occasionally until it wilts.
  2. Make two small indentations in the center of the broccoli rape and crack an egg into each indentation. Cover with lid and cook over medium heat until the egg yolks are set but not hard and the whites have solidified.
  3. Slip the mixture out onto a serving dish and sprinkle with the cheese. The eggs should be runny when cut into. Serve warm.
