Roasted Broccoli!

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

This is god damn delicious! I sort of thought it wouldn't be as good as cauliflower but it is just as good if not better :)

Head of Broccoli
2 Tbsp's of Coconut oil, lard or tallow
1-2 Tbsp's Pinenuts
2 Tbsp's Parmesan cheese
2 cloves garlic
Lemon rind & juice
2 slices of bacon
Lemon Olive oil 
Salt & Pepper

Preheat your oven to 220 degrees C.
Cut the broccoli florets from stalks, discard most of the stalks, only leaving enough to keep the florets in tact. 

Using an oven dish melt your coconut oil in the oven so you can evenly distribute the oil over the broccoli.  Toss the broccoli with salt and pepper and toss through the oil using tongs. 

Roast for 20 minutes, (but at 10 minutes just give them a little flip so they cook evenly). At the 15 minute mark add some grated garlic, if you add it earlier it will likely overcook, once cooked the broccoli  should be browned and crispy!

While your broccoli is cooking toast your Pinenuts in a non stick pan on a very low heat, watch constantly as they will burn if you leave them, only takes approx 2-3 minutes to brown. Chop up the bacon and cook that up also. Grate your Parmesan cheese and the rind of 1 lemon.

Once cooked remove the broccoli from the oven and in a bowl add the Pinenuts, bacon, Parmesan, lemon rind, and just a small squeeze of lemon juice. Once served drizzle with lemon olive oil.
Eat while its hot!
