Is anyone else as big a fan of Pinterest as I am? I just love tagging recipes and crafts there. Recently I stumbled upon some broccoli recipes that sounded divine, so I decided to try my own broccoli recipe! I’ve been trying lot’s of broccoli recipes in an effort to get my family to enjoy it – and this was hands down the BEST recipe I’ve made with broccoli. EVER.
I’ve mixed and matched some ingredients that combine awesomely! But you can change it around based on your own preferences!
~Best Broccoli Recipe Ever~ (aka the first broccoli recipe that did not waste my time!)
-You preheat the oven to 425.
–Take 4 to 5 pounds of dry broccoli and put it on a foil covered baking sheet.
–Toss with olive oil & salt and pepper.
–Add 6 garlic cloves that are peeled and sliced and toss them in. You can add more or less garlic depending on your families preferences…
(Am I the only one that cooks with a laptop on my counter? 😉
–Roast in the oven 20 to 25 minutes until “crisp-tender and the tips of some of the florets are browned.”
–Zest a whole lemon over the broccoli, squeezing the lemon juice all over the broccoli. In my opinion this is the MOST IMPORTANT PART!
–Add some more olive oil,
–And 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
–Toss it all gently.
I think that the amateur gourmet has her finger on some serious magic with this recipe. I have made it 3 times since I tried it early last week! It’s that good!
What’s your favorite Veggie recipe?
*One time I left the broccoli in too long in an effort to make it more crispy. It wasnt as good as when just some of the florets are browned and crisp.
*Remember that even though you start with a lot of broccoli, once its roasted it becomes significantly less. So make more than you think you need:)
