Food and Wine had a recipe for roasted broccoli recently. I discovered roasted broccoli around a year ago when I had it at Lockbox. You see, I had never eaten broccoli, I thought it was yucky. Roasting it changed my world! Add some Siracha sauce and BAM. Eat your vegetables! xoxo
1 large head of broccoli (1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1 1/2-inch florets, stems peeled and sliced 1/4 inch thick 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil Kosher salt freshly ground pepper 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1 teaspoon minced shallot 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 400°. On a large baking sheet, toss the broccoli florets and stems with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast the broccoli in the oven for about 30 minutes, tossing halfway through, until browned and tender.
In a small bowl, whisk the lemon juice with the shallot and the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil; season the dressing with salt and pepper. Scrape the broccoli into a bowl. Add the dressing and the grated cheese, toss well and serve.
