your favorite broccoli dish?

I took advantage of a great sale today and I now have oodles of broccoli ready to be transformed into dazzling dishes. I'm going to make my mom's creamy/tangy broccoli salad and -- hmm, what else??? Favorites?

        I definitely second the grilled broccoli method this time of year. I blanch it in salted water then skewer it and let it brown on the grill. Like roasting, without the oven heat.

        Also, cooked broccoli tossed with pasta, olive oil, salt and red pepper flakes. Simple but oh so good!

      2. I like to saute florets with olive oil, diced garlic, pine nuts, reconstituted and chopped sundried tomatoes, salt, pepper. When completely soft, mash up with the back of a spoon and serve over farfalle with some grated parmigiano reggiano

        1. 1. Toss lightly steamed broc in lots of finely sliced, sauted garlic, olive oil, and coarse salt.
          2. Broc soup: saute onions, add broth & broc, cook til done. Puree solids, add back to broth. Add salt, pepper, and buttermilk to taste, eat cold and warm, but don't simmer the buttermilk -- just heat til its warm.

          1. Steamed broccoli with a little bit of olive oil and Meyer lemon juice squeezed over is simple but yummy. I've taken to roasting broccoli lately too which gives it a whole new taste and texture.
