Roasted Broccoli

No one was harmed while making this recipe, but there was quite a bit of smoke coming from the oven! You definitely want to keep a close watch when your oven is at 500F. The end result though was a great broccoli dish, which is still simple and yet a few steps fancier than my typical steamed variety.

1 lb. broccoli florets
2 T olive oil
Salt
Pepper
2 T unsalted butter
1 t minced garlic
1/2 t lemon zest
1-2 T lemon juice
2 T pine nuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 500F. Toss broccoli with oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange on a single layer on a baking sheet, and roast for 12 minutes, turning once. Place broccoli in a serving bowl.

In a small saucepan, melt butter. Add garlic and lemon zest and heat for 1 minute. Cool slightly, and add lemon juice. Toss mixture with the broccoli and add pine nuts.
