Rapini with Beans and Potatoes
Rapini con fagioli e Patate
by James Belardo

Chock full of nutrients this side dish is a very hearty addition to any meal. Inspired by a friend’s similar dish, we take a simple peasant dish and bring it back home. We prepare this using chicken stock but it can also be prepared with vegetable stock making it a wonderful vegetarian dish!

Ingredients
1 bunch of fresh rapini
1 small onion, cut
2-4 cloves garlic, diced
4 medium sized potatoes
2 cans Romano and/or Cannellini beans (or combination)
olive oil
1 cup Chicken stock (try our homemade version) or use vegetable stock (if you like to keep this vegetarian)
Salt and Pepper – to taste
Peperoncino Fiocchi (hot pepper flakes) – optional

Directions
1. Parboil the potatoes until they show signs of becoming soft, do not cook too much!
