You can go without using oil if you are cooking broccoli rabe in the dry heat of a skillet. It adds a nice sear to the oranges as well. Seasoned with toasty sesame, this healthy vegetable side dish is an easy flavor upgrade.

  2. Add broccoli rabe to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is blistered and the stems are tender-crisp, about 8 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, juice the oranges into a medium bowl. Whisk in oil, salt and pepper.
  4. Add the broccoli rabe to the bowl and toss to coat. Serve garnished with sesame seeds.
