Vegan MoFo: Broccoli Rabe

I adore broccoli rabe. It is one of my favorite things in the world. It's also pure nutritional goodness, full of calcium and iron and vitamins A, C, and K. But did you know also that broccoli rabe is packed with PROTEIN? Yes. One bunch of broccoli rabe, cooked, has 17 GRAMS of protein. A PREGNANT WOMAN requires 60 grams of protein a day. One bunch of cooked broccoli rabe has as much protein as a hard-boiled egg. Amazing! I think I want to try a version of the infamous Julie Hasson seitan sausages with broccoli rabe this week. I will keep you posted!
