WOWNow I like broccoli, I don't like it really mussy, but I like it...
I WILL NEVER EAT IT STEAMED AGAIN.this is taken from the Barefoot Contessa
and you WILL fall in love with Broccolioven 425degrees
4-5pounds broccoli (I just used two heads for us)
cut into florets - DRY THEM (the secret)
toss with olive oil (5TBS)
salt(1/2tsp) and pepper(1/2tsp)
add 4 garlic cloves- chopped
roast in the oven for 20-25 minutes, until 'crisp-tender and the tips of the florets are browned.
When it is done. Take it out of the oven and
HERE'S WHERE IT GETS REALLY GOOD
zest a lemon over the broccoli,just squeeze the lemon juice over the broccoli
add 1.5 TBS more olive oil, 1/3 C of freshly grated Parmesan cheese..
and 3TBS toasted pine nuts (are you kidding me, do you KNOW how much pine nuts cost???)obviously I didn't use this!
trust me, I am so taken with this recipe that I will never eat steamed broccoli again!
