Another new year, another chance to make good on my resolution to eat more broccoli.
Sometimes steaming it is fine with a little butter and lemon juice, but I’ve got to hit the jackpot and get perfect broccoli or I find it hard not to gag as I choke it down.
Enter a recipe from Good Eats, all but guaranteed to make broccoli taste good. The secret is roasting it instead of steaming. I was intrigued enough to give it a try. It’s tossed with olive oil, minced garlic, salt, pepper and toasted panko bread crumbs, then roasted in a hot oven for several minutes. And then you add CHEESE. Uh, okay…I’m down with that.
The verdict? Looks like this is a resolution that’s going to be easy to keep! The five-year-old supertaster in me thought it was a-ok.
