Lemony Roasted Potatoes and Broccoli Rabe
  • 1 1/2 pound yukon gold potatoes, scrubbed
  • 3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3/4 pound broccoli rabe, about one bunch
  • 1/4 cup parmigiano-reggiano, grated
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degree F with racks in the middle of the oven and upper third of the oven.
  2. Slice the potatoes into 3/4-inch pieces. On a large, rimmed baking sheet, toss the potatoes with 2 tablespoons olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes, turning halfway.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the broccoli rabe by rinsing it and spinning it dry in a salad spinner or patting it dry. Slice off the tough lower ends and any stems that are greater than 1/4-inch in diameter and discard those pieces. Roughly chop the remaining rabe into 2 to 3-inch pieces.
  4. On a separate large baking sheet, combine the broccoli rabe with one tablespoon olive oil, 1/4 cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, a pinch of red pepper flakes, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Use your hands to rub the ingredients into the broccoli rabe, so it’s lightly coated in oil. Arrange the broccoli rabe in a single layer. Once the potatoes have only 8 minutes baking time remaining, place the baking sheet on the upper rack in the oven.
  5. Whisk together the dressing ingredients while you wait. Once the timer goes off, the broccoli rabe should be tender and turning crispy in places, and the potatoes should be golden and tender throughout. If not, leave one or both pans in the oven a couple more minutes.
  6. Transfer the potatoes and broccoli rabe to a bowl and drizzle the dressing. Toss to mix well, then season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
