A simple and pleasant side dish.
Keep the broccoli bright green!
Blanch Broccoli crowns in boiling water for 5 minutes. Immediately drain and put them in an ice bath to cease the cooking. Drain well and then toss in a bowl with olive oil and grated cheese. I use Grano Padano almost exclusively. Sprinkle a little black pepper on and if you wish, some red pepper flakes. I don’t always use the red pepper. Spread on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove and serve. The broccoli should stay bright green. Enjoy!
