Your Broccoli came to you from Brown’s Farm in Orange Heights, FL (Organic Broccoli came from CA this week). Broccoli is classified as a cabbage, but it doesn’t look or taste much like round green cabbage or Bok Choy we had last week. The word broccoli is from the Italian plural of broccolo which is the “flowering top” of a cabbage. Broccoli is often boiled or steamed but may be eaten raw. But, nothing says “autumn” quite like roasted vegetables — and that includes broccoli!
Preheat your oven to 425®. Cut your broccoli into medium florets. Dry them thoroughly. Not just salad-spinner dry, but rolled-up-in-a-beach-towel dry! Place your florets on a sheet pan and toss with 4-5 Tbsp olive oil, a teaspoon of kosher salt, ½ teaspoon fresh ground pepper, and 4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced thinly. (Depending on your amount of broccoli, these numbers are for two large bunches or +/- 4 pounds.)
Roast for 15-25 minutes or until your florets are crisp-tender and they start to brown and crisp. 10-15 minutes into roasting, start shaking your pan occasionally and sample your broccoli. When you’re satisfied with the doneness, pull them out and toss with the zest of a lemon, 1-2 Tbsp lemon juice, another tablespoon of olive oil and ¼ cup of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. If you have some pine nuts left over from your last pesto, you could throw a handful of those in as well. Toss to combine and prepare to be blown away. (Recipe is an adaptation from Barefoot Contessa.)
