Roasted Broccoli

This recipe makes my heart skip a beat! Its so super delicious that I just can't get enough! I have made it every night for the last couple of days. I am pretty sure I could eat it all day long. So, anyways, please try this because I know that you will love it.

2-3 heads of broccoli, chopped
4-5 cloves of garlic
Olive Oil or Grape Seed Oil
Lemon Zest and juice from the lemon
Salt and Pepper
Pine Nuts
Parmesan Cheese

Pre-heat your oven to 425 degrees. Chop your broccoli into pieces (however big you like them) and place them on a cookie sheet. Then slice up your garlic and mix it in with your broccoli. Then put a healthy drizzle of whatever oil you decide on top. Then fresh cracked pepper and salt. Mix together well and so that everything is coated and then stick it in the oven for 20-25 min.

While that is roasting you will zest your lemon and juice it. Then you can start to roast your pine nuts. Heat up a little bit of oil in a skillet and then drop a good sized handful of pine nuts in there. Stir them around until they start to brown. Take them off immediately because even when you take them off of the heat they will continue to cook and they will burn.

Once your broccoli is done you will top with lemon juice and zest. Then add pine nuts and sprinkle on some parmesan cheese. Give it one big last stir and then completely devour it. You will want to go back for seconds and thirds- so you might want to double this.

Happy Eating!!
