Simple and versatile, this side dish is essentially a warm broccoli salad dressed with a tangy vinaigrette. The flavor may be a revelation to you if you don’t care for boiled or steamed broccoli—high-heat roasting brings out a delicious sweetness. If you buy broccoli tops with the stems already trimmed away, buy 1 1/2 pounds.

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb. broccoli
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Preheat an oven to 400°F. Cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets.

In a large baking pan, toss the broccoli with 2 Tbs. of the olive oil and the salt until well coated. Spread in a single layer. Roast, stirring frequently, until browned and tender, 18 to 25 minutes.

In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, mustard and the remaining 1 Tbs. olive oil. Add the warm broccoli and pine nuts and stir to coat. Season with salt and pepper and serve immediately. Serves 4 to 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Favorite Broccoli Recipe of All Time Everything about this recipe is perfect. The broccoli is tender-firm, not soggy. The pine nuts are a special treat and the balsamic vinaigrette is perfect. My husband requests this recipe all the time.
