Our favorite broccoli

This is our favorite broccoli dish from the barefoot contessa.

Chop up your broccoli to your desired size and place in a baking dish. Toss with olive oil and either some powdered or minced garlic.

Add 2 T of fresh lemon juice and some lemon zest and some pine nuts. Mix together.
Roast in the oven at 425 for about 20 minutes or until your broccoli is crisp but soft.

The recipe also calls for adding grated parmesan cheese at the end. I didn't have any this time, but it is really good with it if you do have it. The original directions are a bit different. Sometimes I do the lemon juice before roasting, and sometimes after. I can't tell a big difference. Find the recipe here.

That's funny. That's Cason and mine's favorite way to eat broccoli too. Colin will only eat it slathered in cheddar cheese. He doesn't know what he's missing. Yum...I'm going to make some this week I think.
