Tuesday, June 12, 2007 Roasted Broccoli w/ Lemon Garlic & Toasted Pine Nuts

lb broccoli florets
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, grated
1-2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with the oil and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the florets in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast, turning once, for 12 minutes, or until just tender.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and lemon zest and heat, stirring, for about 1 minute. Let cool slightly and stir in the lemon juice.

Place the broccoli in a serving bowl, pour the lemon butter over it and toss to coat. Scatter the toasted pine nuts over the top.
