The Best Broccoli Recipe on Pinterest!General, Recipes — By Shannon Schmid on September 3, 2011 at 7:31 pm
Is anyone else as big a fan as I am of Pinterest? I just love tagging recipes and crafts there. Recently I stumbled upon a broccoli recipe that sounded divine! I’ve tried lot’s of broccoli recipes in an effort to get my family to enjoy it – this was hands down the BEST recipe I’ve made with broccoli. EVER.
I’ve changed a few things to my own preferences, but to read the post I originally pinned you can check out the blog amateur gourmet.
~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:)
