Seeing beautiful fresh greens at the grocery store makes me happy. I’m not a rabbit nor a deer, but taking a look at them makes me feel alive. They are appetizing to me. I know I am weird in some ways and my kids think I am crazy, but deep green vegetables are always enticing to me. When I saw bunches of broccoli rabe, I knew I had to make broccoli rabe salad with soybean paste to add a Korean twist. Of course broccoli rabe is not Korean vegetables, but they make a great Korean side salad.
Broccoli rabe is somewhat bitter on the taste. However, with robust and pungent flavor the Korean soybean paste, the grassy bitterness of this beautiful green becomes tasty bitter, if that makes any sense. Make sure you blanch them in boiling water with some salt. That will get rid of some of bitterness.
This is one might healthy salad with low in fat and sugar. Serve them with rice and you are good to go.
