Leafy vegetables – could not be easier. In the daily menu of every Italian family mostly vegetables, fruits and herbs. The herbs are broccoletti (not to be confused with broccoli), chicory/cicoria, spinach/spinaci and many others. Broccoletti, Cime di rapa, Rapini, Broccoli di rape - a lot of names that "hidden" barely formed buds of the tops of the tops of the most ordinary turnips. They are used in dishes of the Neapolitan and Roman cuisine (in Rome they are called broccoletti). They are also common in Spain, Portugal, China.
