Killer Broccoli

When @cleverkate recommended this recipe, I was a little skeptical. It looked delicious, but isn’t most roasted broccoli great? Well, she was absolutely right – this recipe is killer.

The Amateur Gourmet says that this is the most popular post on his blog and how can we be surprised? The recipe comes from culinary goddess extraordinaire, The Barefoot Contessa – Ina Garten. Oh Ina, you can make me dinner any time…. But I digress. This recipe is far more than your average roasted broccoli (which don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love) but the addition of lemon zest, fresh basil and parmesan is what puts this over the top.

To make this delicious broccoli, you can either follow Ina’s orderly instructions or the Amateur Gourmet’s first hand account which includes pictures. Personally, I liked his instructions which also referenced very sage advice from Jacques Pépin on to wash or not to wash the broccoli.
