About the music: This here is a heady roasted broccoli dish. Here at the SF headquarters we are no stranger to roasting things so we thought what better to roast broccoli to than some roasting music. The Gorillaz start you off with a superfast jellyfish going into some Slightly Stoopid, a most excellent cover of Missy Elliot’s Let Me Blow Your Mind, and our favorite australian guitar/dj duo SUN:MONX. Don’t worry though, things don’t get too weird. We leave you with Boombox’s Stereo, a song basically guaranteed to make you ask your friend what the hell song is massaging your earholes and why you haven’t heard it before. Enjoy.
Prep time: 35 minutes
4 medium heads of fresh broccoli (dry!)
Zest of 1 lemon
1/4 pine nuts, toasted
Parmesan to taste
salt n pepper to taste
2 cloves garlic, minced
I’m not going to be around the bush, I’m a pretty lazy guy. So when thinking about dinner I often lose focus and/or interest after deciding on a main course, leaving me sans vegetable and thus sans healthiness. This recipe is basically a cure-all for lazy cooking syndrom. So now that you are sufficiently roasted, lets start roasting.
Preheat the oven to 425. Meanwhile,cut the broccoli into florets as big as you want (i.e those with small mouths, you know who you are, may want smaller pieces). In a mixing bowl, combine the garlic, broccoli, salt, pepper and olive oil until you have a solid coat going on. Stop. Swill on your whisky drink. Continue.
Put a pice of tinfoil down on a baking sheet (for easy cleanup purposes) and spread the broccoli all up on there. put in in the oven for 20-30 minutes depending on
how high you are your elevation.
In the meantime I suggest doing something fun. Play a game of Tiger Woods golf. Beat someone in backgammon. Swill more whisky drink.
About 5 minutes before you take the broccoli out of the oven, get some pine nuts toasting in a pan. I like to make them nice and charred for that smokey taste.
Take the broccoli out, add the pine nuts, zest the lemon over top (you can squeeze some juice in there too, its not gonna kill you) and grate parmesan on top until someone sees you and asks why the shit you’re putting so much parmesan on the broccoli. Slap them, add a little more parm and you’re done. It’s the pure hits, trust me.
