I love Tyler Florence. His philosophy on food is easy and simple, and I have yet to find a bad recipe. This recipe is adapted barely from a recipe found in Tyler’s Ultimate.
There isn’t much to say about this, except that it’s delicious. I love recipes that are super easy and taste great. This one fits that perfectly. I love roasted vegetables, it’s an easy way to bring out a lot of flavor without coating them in velveeta or butter.
Roasted Broccoli with Parmesan Crispies
2 heads of broccoli
1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
Fresh cracked black pepper
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bring a pot of salted water to boil. Trim about one inch off the ends and peel the stalks with a vegetable peeler. Cut the broccoli into long spears. When the water comes to a boil, add the broccoli and cook until it’s just tender (about 3 minutes). The broccoli should still have its bright green color. Drain in a colander. Arrange the broccoli on a non stick oven proof pan (I use a rimmed cookie sheet sprayed with Pam). Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the broccoli and top with a generous amount of fresh black pepper. Bake until the cheese melts and is crisp and brown, about 10 minutes. Use a spatula to lift the broccoli out of the pan, and serve.
