    NcMysteryShopper's Note:

    Brazil nuts not only make a great pesto, they also add selenium, a cancer-fighting mineral, to this already healthful broccoli dish. This recipe was created by Melissa Clark, co-author of 17 cookbooks and her own cookbook, Chef Interrupted. MAKE AHEAD: The pesto can be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before using.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 500°. In a mini food processor, combine the parsley with the Brazil nuts, water, tarragon, garlic and lemon zest and pulse to a coarse paste. Add 3 tablespoons of the olive oil and the Parmesan and process to a slightly smooth paste. Season with salt and pepper.
    2. 2
      On 2 large, rimmed baking sheets, toss the broccoli florets with the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and spread in an even layer. Season with salt and pepper. Roast the broccoli in the center of the oven for 8 minutes. Switch the baking sheets and continue to roast for about 8 minutes longer, or until the broccoli is browned and crisp-tender. Transfer the broccoli to a platter, drizzle the pesto on top and serve.

      I love broccoli anyway, even just plain steamed broccoli, but I doubt if I’ll be eating it like that any more! This recipe is SO easy and SO delicious – and really quick to make! The only change I made was to increase the amount of garlic from 1 clove to four (a personal taste preference). The leftovers were great next day mixed into Perfect Basic White Rice Perfect Basic White Rice. This is fabulous recipe which I cannot recommend highly enough! I agree with Beck D, it really is the pesto that makes this dish. If you haven’t tried this one yet, I’d encourage you to do so: it’s sensational.

      This is totally fantastic, neither DH nor myself are broccoli fans and we loved it! It's the pesto that makes this dish, I found it very hard to stop eating it while the broccoli was roasting. I had to make this with almonds rather than brazil nuts and dried tarragon rather than fresh and it was still beautiful. I highly recommend this recipe!
