Roasted Broccoli w/Garlic and Pine Nuts


Roasted Broccoli with Garlic and Pine Nuts
Fresh Broccoli Florets (about 1 lb, I used a TJ bag)
1 Tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, sliced (more if you love garlic)
1 Tbsp pine nuts
1 Tbsp grated Parmesan
salt and pepper

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 425.  Place broccoli florets on a baking pan (I lined mine with aluminum foil).  If you are using fresh broccoli cut it into florets and make sure that they are VERY dry.  You may even want to skip washing it.  Wet broccoli = soggy broccoli.  Add sliced garlic.
2. Drizzle 1 Tbsp of olive oil over the top.  Add salt then toss to mix (I used tongs).


3. Bake for 15-20 minutes until broccoli starts to look brown but not yet crisp.  Take out, mix up with tongs and add pine nuts.  Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the broccoli look crisp and a few are brown.
4. Remove from the oven and place in a serving dish.  Add the grated Parmesan.

Enjoy!  They are best eaten right out of the oven so don't wait.
