Author Notes: Broccoli roasted with tahini, garlic, and lemon becomes crispy and creamy.Laurie

Food52 Review: WHO: Laurie is a mother of two corgis and two daughters (not necessarily in that order—though both sets love her cooking).
WHAT: An addictive, tahini-soaked spin on roasted broccoli.
HOW: Toss broccoli in a mixture of tahini, lemon juice, minced garlic, olive oil, and salt and pepper, then bake for 10 minutes, eat one immediately, and try to save the rest for dinner.
WHY WE LOVE IT: When we first saw the broccoli come out of the oven, we had every intention of saving it to eat with lunch—but that didn't happen. Within a matter of minutes, we'd eaten every crispy, lemon-spiked stalk straight off the pan.
