Both main ingredients were included in our basket this week. I admit the first week we received the green garlic I thought it was a funny colored scallion and sliced that baby up and sprinkled in into our salad. It was…pungent.
Anyway, I was looking up recipes for the romanesco cauliflower I also received and they suggested roasting that vegetable, so I decided to do the same with the broccoli. Here’s how I did it:
Broccoli, cut into florets
crushed red pepper
minced green garlic
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. For an easy cleanup, line a baking pan with foil. Grease with olive oil and place broccoli on the pan. Season with red pepper, salt and black pepper. Drizzle some more olive oil over the broccoli.
- Cook broccoli in the oven for 4 to 5 minutes. Open the oven carefully, and give the pan a shake to loosen the broccoli from the pan. If the broccoli looks like it is cooking very quickly, reduce the oven temp to 350 degrees and continue cooking for another 5 minutes or so.
- Check the broccoli again and sprinkle the minced garlic over the broccoli. Stir, and return to the oven for a minute or two.
