Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe & Chickpeas : Diabetic Italian Recipe

Orecchiette with Broccoli Rabe & Chickpeas : Diabetic Italian Recipe


What You Need

  • 4 ounces whole-wheat orecchiette or chiocciole (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/2 bunch broccoli rabe, ends trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 3/4 cup vegetarian chicken-flavored broth 
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/8 teaspoon dried
  • 1 8-ounce can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

  • How To Do

    1. Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 6 minutes. Add broccoli rabe and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and broccoli rabe are just tender, about 3 minutes more. Drain. Rinse and dry the pot.
    2. Whisk broth and flour in a small bowl. Heat oil in the pot over medium-high heat. Add garlic and rosemary and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Whisk in the broth mixture. Bring to a simmer, whisking constantly, until it thickens. Add chickpeas, vinegar, salt, pepper and the pasta mixture. Cook, stirring constantly, until heated through and coated with the sauce, about 2 minutes.
    Note: Chicken-flavored broth, a vegetarian broth despite its name, is preferable to vegetable broth in some recipes for its hearty, rich flavor. Sometimes called "No-Chicken Broth," it can be found with the soups in the natural-foods section of most supermarkets.
