Broccoli with Walnut Gremolata

Prep time 8 mins
Cook time 6 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 cup)
Traditionally, gremolata combines fresh parsley, lemon rind, and garlic to create a powerful flavor sensation. It adds bright flavor when sprinkled over just about any simply prepared vegetable or fish. Toasted nuts punch up the flavor even more. Substitute pecans or almonds for the walnuts, if you wish.

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 pound broccoli florets
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped walnuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
