Ingredients
  • 2 pounds fresh broccoli, florets removed, about 2 large bunches, divided
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons orange zest, plus juice from 1 large orange
  • Coarse salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 large garlic cloves, peeled and smashed
Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Put 2/3 of the broccoli in a large bowl with the olive oil and orange juice; season with salt and pepper and toss well to coat. Transfer the broccoli to a large rimmed baking sheet in 1 layer and roast until just tender with golden brown edges, approximately 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, pour the cream into a medium heavy-bottomed saucepan, add the remaining broccoli, garlic, and orange zest and bring to a gentle simmer over medium-low heat. Cook until the cream has reduced to half its original volume and the broccoli is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

With a hand-held immersion blender, potato masher, or food processor, blend or pulse the cream and broccoli mixture until coarsely blended and still a bit chunky. Gently fold in the roasted broccoli; taste and adjust seasoning, if necessary. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve warm.
