Roasting it is absolutely delicious, like the people above said - with some garlic, oil, salt and nooch.

i support the broccoli on pizza! roast it with some garlic, oil and red pepper flakes to go with dinner one night, and save the extra to be the star of your pizza or calzone the next night. it tastes really good over a white bean puree along with basil, lemon juice, cashew ricotta or a thick pesto (like AFR edamame pesto). i want this right now!!

Ok, this sounds really simple, but I copied it from a restaurant I went to years ago and it is my favorite broccoli recipe. And I looove broccoli! I think it would be best with a convection oven, to like really BLAST it.

Blasted Broccoli

1 lb broccoli, cut into florets
2 tbsp olive oil
3-4 cloves garlic
Salt
Juice of one lemon

Press garlic into a little bowl, pour oil over garlic. Let sit at least 10 minutes, more if you have time.
Place broccoli in a glass roasting dish (I use 9x13). Pour garlic oil over the top
Place in a preheated 450-500 degree oven (I go 475)
Roast for 10-12 minutes. Take out and toss a bit. Roast for another 5-10 minutes.
Done when the broccoli is crisp, and the garlic is getting really brown. Deglaze the whole thing with lemon juice and sprinkle with sea salt. Don't forget the lemon/garlic bits in the bottom of the pan!

I prefer it roasted or in stir fries, but I tried this in the stores deli once and it's good. If you like sweeter dishes, try it: http://www.pccnaturalmarkets.com/pcc/re ... li-waldorf

I like it roasted, too - with garlic, lemon, and sliced almonds.

Oh! The AFR 40-clove broccoli with chickpeas. That's a great one! I add extra lemon, and some red chili flakes because broccoli and red pepper flakes/lemon love each other.

+1 forking delicious

Yes, it was black bottle. Man that place was awesome. I was considering it for a private event for my company, but it was too small. Instead I just ate there like 3x that week when I was in town.

I would LOVE to try making this broccoli dish in a convection oven.

Broccoli wraps! I stirfry chopped broccoli in olive oil with onions, basil and oregano. Then heap it up on 12" ww tortillas, throw in a few T. of cheddar Daiya, wrap them up and heat in a cast iron skillet until the Daiya melts. Dinner in 20 minutes or less.

I really like it in polenta. Just cut it up super tiny and mix in. Great soft or firm. With pixie poo/nooch and plenty of pepper.

I just told my friend we need to make a trip there, and she said her coworker has told her about the broccoli too... I hope I don't let my expectations get too high ;)

Lemons go well with broccoli as does caraway seeds but on the caraway a little goes a long way so be careful.

My mom made something she called broccoli bruschetta. Steam broccoli. Sautee some garlic, add broccoli, sliced/chopped olives, salt and pepper. Mash it a bit and serve on toast. I love it.

My favorite way to eat broccoli is in a cold pasta salad/with a homemade balsamic & olive oil dressing. (not store- bought, not enough balsamic in them to get the same effect) Just toss the broccoli into the pot of the boiling pasta water for the last minute that you are cooking the pasta. After you've drained the broccoli and pasta, throw in whatever other ingredients you want in the salad. Once assembled, toss with the dressing and refrigerate overnight. By morning, the broccoli will have soaked up the balsamic and has the most amazing sweet taste. Remember to make extra dressing though, as the salad does tend to soak it all up and it can be pretty dry the next day.

Otherwise, several other people have mentioned roasting broccoli, and you can never go wrong with that, just make sure to give it a squeeze of lemon (or balsamic) before eating.
