Chorizo and Broccoli Rabe is a dish of Beans, Chorizo and Broccoli sautéed in olive oil with garlic and onions.
Three simple ingredients when fused up makes this marvellous dish that is Chorizo and Broccoli Rabe, this is the one of the many complex flavours of the Mediterranean, bitter, creamy, spicy, savoury delicious. If you notice I use a lot of chorizo in some of my recipes, I like this ingredient as imparts a lot of flavours to the dish like how bacon does it American dishes but unlike bacon it is more complex, bacon gives saltiness, smokiness and meatiness but with chorizo it gives you complex layers of spice like paprika, cumin and chillies; it also gives you meatiness a bit of smokiness and some hints of oregano and garlic.
Today we will be using it to add flavours to this dish which is a perfect with the creamy beans and bitter broccoli rabe, they just blend well and enhance each other’s flavour making this wonderful concoction. Perfect to pair with pasta, rice or bread to mop up all that wonderful sauce.
