Rapini with Tuna, Chickpeas and Sundried TomatoesPosted by in Parchment Paper Packets
Rapini is also called broccoli rabe. I love trying new and different veggies, so I was excited to give this a try. In this recipe, I’ve made it into a meal by including tuna and beans. Grate some Parmesan cheese over this if you like.
Half bunch of rapini
1 can tuna in water, undrained
7.5 ounce can of chickpeas, drained
3 sundried tomatoes, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons chicken broth
2 tablespoons cornstarch
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cut about a 40 inch piece of parchment paper (if you want to use a standard size piece -see Technique page on this blog- then you need to cut the rapini in half before placing on the parchment). Place the rapini on the parchment. Pour tuna and water over the rapini. Add the beans and tomatoes. Sprinkle minced garlic on top. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle olive oil on top. Mix chicken broth and cornstarch and pour on top. Fold the parchment (see Technique page) and bake for 20 minutes, or until rapini is tender. Serves 4.
This recipe feels very hearty and is great with some Italian bread.
