Kid-Approved Roasted Broccoli


Kid-Approved Roasted Broccoli

Who said kids won’t eat broccoli? I can get almost any child to eat this version! 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.

Serves 6

Ingredients

1 pound broccoli florets, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons grated 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

Place a large cast-iron skillet in the oven and preheat the oven to 500°.

Remove preheated skillet from oven. Add broccoli and oil; stir well. Bake at 500° for 8 minutes, stirring after 6 minutes. Combine broccoli, cheese, and remaining ingredients in a bowl; toss gently. Serve immediately.
