1 pound broccoli florets

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest

1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the broccoli with the oil and salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the florets in a single layer on a baking sheet and roast, turning once, for 12 minutes, or until just tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and lemon zest and heat, stirring, for about 1 minute. Let cool slightly and stir in the lemon juice. Place the broccoli in a serving bowl, pour the lemon butter over it and toss to coat. Scatter the toasted pine nuts over the top.
