Yes: I am not quite sure what the rabe means but as far as broccoli is concerned that should not be a problem
re gout it is organ meats / meat in general and beans that seem to stir things up lentals are ok
diet control for gout is a bit challenging but mostly means limiting the above food
articles and checking the uric acid levels
broccolirabe is realted to turnips you eat the greens.

Is broccoli rabe ok if you have gout?

Gout : The uric acid in broccoli is a little higher than some other veggies, which could cause it. Ultimately most gout patients find their trigger, and then avoid it.
