1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing

7 cloves garlic, smashed 

1 bunch broccoli rabe (including the leaves), cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces 

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 

Flaky sea salt 

8 1/2-inch-thick slices country bread 

Freshly ground pepper

Burrata, for serving


  1. Heat the olive oil in a pot over medium heat. Add 6 garlic cloves and sauté until golden, 2 minutes. Add the broccoli rabe, red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt. Cover and cook, tossing occasionally, until tender, 8 to 12 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, grill the bread on a grill pan over medium heat until well marked and golden, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Rub both sides with the remaining smashed garlic clove and brush with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Serve the broccoli rabe with burrata, flaky sea salt and the grilled garlic bread.
