In Seattle, there is a trendy restaurant called the Black Bottle. I went once with a bunch of folks and we shared everything. One of the best meals of my life! And fortunately, I was able to track down their recipe. This is my adaptation. I’m not a big veggie person, so for me to most remember the broccoli from a foodie’s dream meal should really tell you something 🙂
- 1 1/4 lb broccoli, cut into florets (about 8 cups)
- 3 1/2 T extra virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- couple large pinches of crushed red pepper
- kosher salt
- fresh cracked mixed peppercorns
Preheat oven to 450.
Toss broccoli and 3 T oil on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast 5 minutes. Stir remaining 1/2 T oil, garlic, pinch salt, cracked pepper, and red pepper in small bowl. Sprinkle garlic mixture over broccoli; toss to coat. Roast until broccoli is cooked through and slightly charred, ~6 min longer. Season with more salt. Serve immediately.
