Roasted broccoli tossed in a lemon infused oil with Parmesan cheese, spicy red pepper flakes and toasted almonds.
This is one of the best ways to doctor up broccoli that I know of. Other than smothering it in cheese. And bacon.
Every bite is bursting with fresh lemon. The bright flavor of sunshine dominates followed closely by the salty cheese and the kick of the red pepper.
Roasted broccoli is kind of smoky and earthy with all those lovely charred bits. Hundreds of little nooks and crannies soak up the luscious lemon oil and give the parmesan cheese something to cling to.
Almonds add a welcome crunch but if you chose to skip them they wouldn’t be missed. Not one single bit.
Lemon is the shining star.
