Blasted Broccoli

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by TasteTester

This recipe is really delicious and couldn't be simpler to make, and only takes a few minutes to cook. The broccoli comes out crisp-tender; the broccoli has a slightly crisp exterior from cooking it at such high heat. This recipe is from Food and Wine.

Fabulous broccoli! I cut my broccoli into spears (not florets) and after about 5-7 min. they were done perfectly. They were still crispy and had that roasted flavor. I found I liked it best without the balsamic.
