Kid-Approved Roasted Broccoli

Who said kids won't eat broccoli? I can get almost any kid to eat this dish. Roasting leaves it tasting its absolute best. Once you master the roasting technique, play around with flavor options. You can zest a lemon or grate Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese over the top after roasting, or mix in some currants at the end. Yum.

  • Yield: Serves 6 (serving size: 1/2 cup)
  • Hands-on: 6 Minutes
  • Total: 18 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound broccoli florets, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons grated fresh Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried currants
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

1. Place a large cast-iron skillet in the oven.

2. Preheat oven to 500°.

3. Remove preheated skillet from oven. Add broccoli and oil; stir well. Bake at 500° for 8 minutes, stirring after 6 minutes.

4. Combine broccoli, cheese, and remaining ingredients in a bowl; toss gently. Serve immediately.

Tip: If you're buying whole heads of broccoli, cut off the florets, and then cut the top half of the stems into 1/3-inch coins. Toss them in with the florets to roast. They're delicious!
