Equipment

Ingredients

  • 20 ounces broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup olice oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1 ounce sliced almonds
  • 3/4 ounce shaved or shredded parmesan
  • 2 tsp lemon juice or balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together olive oil, garlic, and red pepper. Toss oil mixture with broccoli to coat.
  • Spread broccoli into an even layer onto prepared baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, and gently toss broccoli on the baking sheet. Top with sliced almonds.
  • Bake for an additional 6-8 minutes, or until almonds are toasted and broccoli is tender.
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle with lemon juice (or balsamic vinegar) and top with parmesan. Serve immediately.

Notes

  • Store refrigerated in a sealed container for up to 3 days.
  • To ensure even cooking, make sure to cut the broccoli into similarly sized pieces and roast in an even layer. Half large florets for better caramelization. 
  • Instead of parmesan, you can also use a similarly flavorful cheese such as asiago or pecorino.
