Bruschetta With Sauteed Bitter Greens

Ah, bruschetta! This Italian starter course brings crusty bread and sauteed greens together deliciously to create a fabulous vegan started course. What a yummy way to get people to eat their greens! 


1 each whole grain sour dough baguette -- sliced
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 dried chili pepper -- seed and dice
1 bunch broccoli rabe -- rinse, then slice

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Arrange the bread slices on the baking sheet. Brush lightly with some of the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake about 15 minutes or until crisp and golden. 

While the breads toast, heat 1 tablespoon of oil deep skillet and add chili pepper and saute until fragrant. Stir in the broccoli, season lightly with salt, and saute over medium heat until broccoli is deep green and just tender, about five minutes. 

To serve, arrange toast on a platter and mount each with sauteed broccoli. Serve hot.
