Do you like dares? I do. Well, unless they involve heights, in which case I’ll pass. If you dare me to do something with my two feet firmly on the ground, I’ll be inclined to take you up on it.
My dare for you is to serve something a little different at Thanksgiving. Just one side dish that deviates from the usual green bean casserole and mashed potatoes, maybe. Or a dessert that’s not pumpkin pie. (This dessert should certainly not replace pumpkin pie, however. Let’s not get too crazy.) Just something that will broaden your guests’ horizons a bit and liven up the standard beige Thanksgiving plate.
Here’s a side dish that fits the bill. It includes broccoli rabe, which we’ve talked about before—it looks like long, flat broccoli but tastes more like kale. It’s bitter in the best way. I really like it.
