8 cups broccoli florets (2 to 3 large heads)

5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

4 large cloves garlic, roughly chopped

2 large shallots, roughly chopped

Kosher salt

1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup finely shredded aged Asiago cheese

Zest of 1 lemon (about 2 teaspoons)


  1. Set a rimmed baking sheet on an oven rack and preheat to 425 degrees F.
  2. Add the broccoli, oil, garlic, shallots, 3/4 teaspoon salt and red pepper flakes to a large bowl and toss to coat. Transfer to the preheated baking sheet and spread out in a single layer. Roast until the broccoli florets are browned on the ends, the stalks are crisp-tender and the shallots are caramelized, about 20 minutes, tossing about halfway through. Immediately sprinkle with the Asiago and lemon zest. Season with some salt if needed. Transfer to a serving platter.
