Help me like broccoli
I love vegetables, but I have to admit, when it comes to broccoli, I'm just as wary as I was as a kid. I tolerate broccoli in pasta, but I haven't found any recipes that get me excited. How do you cook broccoli? If you have a healthy and delicious recipe, please share!
Roast Broccoli is my new favorite - initially I was afraid of the strong flavor of cumin overpowering everything but the spices add a really subtle dimension to the vegetables. same with the chili powder - this isn't a spicy dish at all.
2 lbs broccoli cut into 2" pieces
2 T olive oil
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp kosher salt
1 t black pepper
1/8 tsp chili powder
preheat oven to 425
toss broccoli with oil and spices
spread broccoli on a single layer on baking sheet
roast 20 mins, toss and roast another 10 mins
the broccoli should be brown and crispy on the tips, so don't worry if it looks like you 'burnt' them - this adds great nutty flavor and crunch to the soft florettes.
I'm with you, but Broccoli roasted is a revelation. Try this, you'll love it!!
1 Pound Broccoli, rinsed and left wet
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil, more as necessary
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/3 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
¼ Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
Cut the Broccoli Florets into bite size pieces. Cut the stalks into 1/8” thick rounds. Place all in a mixing bowl, add the Oil and Salt and Pepper. Toss to cover. Add the Panko and toss to combine. Place all in a 9”x13” baking dish and bake in a preheated 425 degree F oven until tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese, toss and serve immediately.
Roast it. Pre heat oven to 400F. After rinsing, slice off the florets and the bottom of the stem. Peel the stem and slice into bite size pieces. Put all on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with sea or Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set the oven rack in the middle of the oven and place the baking sheet on the rack. Roast for about 15 minutes or until the broccoli begins to brown around the edges. Shake the pan once or twice during the roasting. Somepeople like to sprinkle with freshly grated cheese but I don"t. I think you'll be surprised to find that the broccoli has a nice sweet-ish flavor....
