Roasted broccoli with lemon and parmesan

By • January 9, 2010 • 6 Comments



Author Notes: This is based on a recipe from one of the Ina Garten cookbooks, but I've played with it a little bit. It's just about the only way I prepare broccoli any more, unless it's in a salad.Kayb

Serves 4

  • 2 bunches broccoli, florets only
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmigiano reggiano
  1. Separate broccoli florets into bite-sized pieces. Toss with olive oil and spread on baking sheet. Roast at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, until brown in a few spots.
  2. Remove to a bowl and toss with remaining ingredients. Serve immediately.

I made this for dinner last night. It was superb, and it far out-performed the main dish!!

Yum! I will be making this at Thanksgiving since my five year old daughter is boycotting green beans, any dish with corn, sweet potatoes and yams (thankfully, she requested broccoli, tomatoes, and lima beans).

I love broccoli cooked this way - I usually do a mix of broccoli and cauliflower - yours is much "fancier" than my version - I just toss the veg. with olive oil, kosher salt and freshly ground pepper and roast it for 15 minutes - then we devour it!

Yum, yum, yum. So simple, so beautiful. I'm making this tomorrow night -- to serve with Merrill's meatloaf! Honestly, if this site keeps going at the rate it's been, I'll never need another cookbook again!

Thanks. It's just SO easy and really the best cooked broccoli I've had.
