This broccoli recipe works well as a side dish. It is the perfect combination of tangy, spicy and nutty.
broccoli, washed, dried, trimmed and sliced
½ - 1
dried red pepper flakes
extra virgin olive oil
fresh lemon juice
parmesan cheese (freshly grated)
Preheat the oven to 450 °F.
Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Mix together minced garlic, dried red pepper flakes and olive oil in a large bowl. Add cut broccoli into the bowl and toss in the oil mixture until coated.
Place the broccoli on the baking sheet.
Sprinkle salt over the broccoli and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, flip the broccoli and spread the sliced almonds over the baking sheet.
Bake for another 8 minutes.
Using tongs, transfer the broccoli into the large bowl, and coat with the lemon juice. Then add the parmesan cheese.
Let cool & enjoy!
Tastes best if served immediately. Stores well in refrigerator for 3-4 days.
