I am crazy about broccoli. I can make it an eat it for dinner. That's weird. I know. We live where it is grown, pretty much year round. And I crave it. There are a couple dishes I make as side dishes and I can pretty much diss the rest of the meal if broccoli is on the table, especially if there is pine nuts on it. Pine nuts or Parmesan cheese. That is it. I'm done. This dish does it for me. And I thought I was just being weird, but even The Fireman thought this dish was point on. He went back and loaded his plate up. I must be doing something right. Now if only my kids ate it the way I do.....
Lemon Broccoli with Pine Nuts
1 bag of broccoli
lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 cup pine nuts
preheat oven to 400 degrees
dump broccoli on cookie sheet
zest your lemon over the broccoli
make sure you get all the lemon zest on the back
juice the lemon all over the broccoli
drizzle olive oil over the broccoli
sprinkle some seasoning over the broccoli and then toss the broccoli
roast till brown. I like it brown. The darker the better.
Cover if the rest of your meal is not finished.
And toast your pine nuts in a dry pan.
right before serving, top with pine nuts and Parmesan cheese
