Roasted Broccoli with Buttered Walnuts

Buttered walnuts add depth of flavor to simple roasted broccoli for a healthy, easy holiday side dish.

Recipe from


3 pounds fresh broccoli
1/3 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Cut broccoli into 3" lengths; cut thick pieces in half lengthwise. Place in a roasting pan, and drizzle with olive oil; toss to coat well. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast at 500° for 14 minutes, stirring once after 8 minutes.
