MO brown rice with puntarella and sesame

Here are the ingredients for the sample dish served at the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market on March 1, 2008:

Massa Organics brown rice, cooked
braised puntarella chicory, chopped
black sesame seeds

Puntarella is an Italian chicory, and had something of a broccoli flavor to me. If you can't find puntarella, I think you could easily substitute broccoli de cicco, which is a slender, heirloom variety of broccoli from Italy that is pretty common in farmers markets now. Enjoy!
