The Best BROCCOLI you've ever had!

I have wrote so many weird things I never thought I'd ever write and today is no exception, today I'm sharing The BEST BROCCOLI recipe I've every had!!! Seriously Delicious!!!
Other things I never thought would happen, Lee might have been working late and I might have eaten 4 cups of this Broccoli to myself . . . :S
I call it Lemon, Pine Nut, Parmesan Broccoli! (A little more descriptive then needed but it really gets the point accross).

You'll need:
Some Pine nuts for 4 cups of broccoli I used 1/8 of a cup toasted in a pan quickly!
4+ cups of Broccoli (I use about 3 or 4 broccoli Crowns)
1/8 of a cup shredded Parmesan Cheese (don't use the cheap kind in the shaky jar at the back of the fridge splurge for fresh grated)
Juice of half a lemon (Use a fresh Lemon) you can add more lemon if you like, I usually add more to mine after Lee's taken his.
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cut up Broccoli, place on baking sheet. Toss with a drizzle of Olive Oil and a generous sprinkling of Salt and Pepper.
Roast broccoli in oven for approx 10- 15 min . . . seriously keep an eye on it, it goes from done to burnt in like 2 seconds!
Toast pine nuts in pan.
Add Broccoli, Toasted Pine Nuts, Lemon Juice and Parmesan in a bowl together!

Get a Fork, eat Broccoli! HANDS DOWN BEST BROCCOLI EVER!!!!
if you don't like lemon you probably won't like this broccoli . . . I'm talking to you Dad!

A little Broccoli info:
Broccoli is rich in cholesterol-reducing fiber and has antiviral and antiulcer activity. It is a super source of chromium that helps regulate insulin and bloodsugar. Broccoli is also a good source of calcium, thus help fight osteoporosis. Broccoli has large amounts of both soluble and insoluble fiber!

  1. It does indeed sound seriously delicious. I have added a star to this one, and broccoli to my shopping list.

  2. On the menu for next week...thanks! Sounds super delish!! Oh, and posted a super yummy recipe today you might want to try.

  3. It sounds good, and I am not much of a broccoli person. :)

  4. Mmm. I often eat steamed broccoli with a pinch of salt, a drizzle of lemon juice, and a few shakes of parmesan cheese. This sounds very similar!

  5. This may be a weird questions ... can I use frozen broccoli ? My fam does not like veggies with crunch. I may just go for it anyway. I've roasted brussel sprouts from frozen and they turn out fabulous.

  6. I love broccoli and I love lemon - so basically I'm itching to try this one!

  7. SparkN4Him-
    I've never made it with frozen broccoli ? ? so I'm not sure how that would turn out, frozen broccoli might be too wet to get a good crunch on them ,but if your kids hate crunch it might be a better way to go!! I'd say give it a try and let me know how it turns out!!!

  8. This looks so good. It's going on my food pinboard :)

  9. I will try it! Thanks for sharing!

  10. Do you have a good substitute for the pine nuts (which are apparently the price of gold around here). Thanks, Danielle

  11. Hi Danielle!
    At least 50% of the time I omit the pine nuts, they are so expensive right now!!!
    It's just as good without the pine nuts!!!
    Hope that helps

  12. Yum! How did I miss this post? Looks great and so easy to make. Love it.
