    Ms. Mother Earth's Note:

    This recipe I believe originated with The Barefoot Contessa, so we have to continue to give her the credit. I've roasted lots of different veggies but never broccoli----this is the only way I will prepare it from now on. It is just that good! The quantity is flexible, just adjust the ingredients to match the amount of broccoli you're roasting.

    Serves: 4


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 425. Spread broccoli on a cookie sheet or I prefer a jelly roll pan.
    2. 2
      Toss with olive oil, garlic & S&P.
    3. 3
      Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, I tossed once, until crisp tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.
    4. 4
      While the broccoli is roasting toast the pine nuts and zest the lemon.
    5. 5
      Now comes the yummy part! Remove the broccoli from oven and toss with the lemon zest and squeeze the lemon juice over it.
    6. 6
      You can add a little more EVOO at this time if necessary (I didn't).
    7. 7
      Toss broccoli with the pine nuts and parmesan cheese. I even love it cold!

      Absolutely delicious! The lemon zest and juice really brightens the flavor and the addition of pine nuts and parmesan cheese really compliments the broccoli as well. This may just become my favorite way to make broccoli. Good thing it was only the two of us or we might have had a fight on our hands! We were nice and shared. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.

      This was delicious and so easy. My daughter took some leftovers to work with her the next day and the woman working with her insisted that she hated broccoli. She tasted some and begged for the recipe. Thanks so much.
