OMG! It's so, so good. I think I've made it about 10 times since first seeing it on Pinterest. In fact, I am eating a big plate of it now for lunch! The lemon, the garlic, the roasted flavor! Yum!

I've made it without the cheese for me and with cheese (for DH and kids) and they love it too.

I did add the pine nuts in and a little bit of fresh sliced basil a few times, but even without those this recipe kicks ass!

It's like crack!



Enjoy!
Best Broccoli of your Life

Yes, I've made it. Very good. I love The Barefoot Contessa. For me, her recipes have all been no-fail.

I eat low-carb and love broccoli so I'm definitely trying this. TFS!

Am I missing it or is there no easy way to print just the recipe? I don't want the whole blog post. And a separate ingredient list?

We tried it (also from that same blog page) and everyone here liked steamed better.

Thank you! I tend to put all my focus in the entree and just steam veggies. My family loves broccoli!

I'm not a fan of broccoli but I love it prepared this way. We have it at least once a week.

Oh it's simply oven roasted broccoli. I love roasted veggies.

Curious side question. Why do folks credit "pininterest" for the recipe or craft patterns etc? All that site does is allow you to bookmark things. They do no create things.

OP -- I was wondering about that recipe; thanks for posting your review.

Because that's where they find the recipe or craft pattern. It's like when a friend or sister passes along a recipe, I'll think of them or refer to it as their _________ recipe, even if I know they didn't create the recipe.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone credit pinterest for creating things. It's a great place to find things. Lots of peas use pinterest-just because they mention where they foind it doesn't mean they're thinking it was created by pinterest.

I've made roasted broccoli before, but never added cheese (not lemon, pine nuts, etc. either) but I'll give this recipe a whirl next time I make it. My DH isn't a huge cheese lover, but I am, so I'll make it.

Over time I've grown to love any and all vegetables roasted--roasting just brings out the sweetness. After eating roasted vegetables, I really don't care for the steamed anymore, they just seem to bland.

TFS!

We have tried it, and I have to be honest and say no one in my family liked it. So ... it wasn't worth the effort.

Maybe I did something wrong???

I've been cooking my broccoli that way for 30 years. Although I don't add basil.
I could eat broccoli everyday and never get tired if it

I tried and did not like at all. I wanted to. I really did. We threw it all away because none of us enjoyed it.

I have not tried that recipe but make something similar on top of the stove in a frypan.

We also grill in tinfoil which gets that same baked effect.. so much better than just steaming.

I liked it. I didn't love it. My dh didn't care for it and the boys were ok.

Maybe I did something wrong too. It was crispy on the edges--I usually like roasted veggies though. Hmmm, maybe I have to try it again with the basil.

It's a staple in my house. I make it very frequently actually. I even made it when I catered a retreat a few months ago. I got rave reviews. I have never used the basil or pine nuts. As a matter of fact, I pretty much do it as simply as possible. Here's what I do:

1. Arrange broccoli on sheet pan & spray generously with olive oil spray. I tried drizzling one time, and got WAY too much oil.
2. Sprinkle with salt and garlic (preferably fresh).
3. Roast at 450* for at least 45 minutes, more depending on the level of caramelizing that has occurred.
4. Once out of the oven, sprinkle with lemon juice and freshly grated parmesan.

Incredible! It even got my non-broccoli-eating husband to crave it!

Has anyone ever done cauliflower in the same way? I have often wondered how it would be.

It's a staple in our house - I make mine a little differently.

I toss the broccoli in lemon-infused olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I sprinkle with Kosher salt and herbs de Provence. I don't usually add parmesan, olive oil, or fresh herbs (if I have some on hand, I'll add basil or oregano).

This works great with green beans, cauliflower, and Brussels sprouts, too.

I regularly make roasted broccoli with just olive oil, but this is the recipe I make for a veggie side dish whenever someone comes over. It doesn't matter which main dish I make, the guests always comment on how good the broccoli is.

I did a whole roasted cauliflower exactly like this last weekend. It was fabulous.
And it would be superb to serve to guests because it looks great. Cut the whole cauliflower into quarters and it just looks so interesting with the creamy white inside and the golden outside.
Here is the recipe I used:

I'm going to try this. I hate cutting up cauliflower for steaming. This looks a lot easier.

btw I've also seen a recipe to roast cabbage (quartered, not whole) but haven't tried it yet.
