Cook’s Notes:


Broccoli Rabe Recovery Juice is best enjoyed straight away.

A centrifugal juicer was used for this recipe. A masticating or cold-pressed juicer should work analogously. If you’d like to make your Broccoli Rabe Recovery Juice using a powerful high-speed blender, you may wish to add a splash of water to get things moving initially. After juicing, strain any fiber/pulp through a mesh strainer, nut milk bag or cheesecloth to achieve your desired consistency.
