If a recipe can make my husband chow down on broccoli, you know it’s good. I happen to LOVE broccoli so this is one of my favorite recipes right now.
I have done some variations on a theme. Last night I made it with half broccoli/half cauliflower. I have also made it using fresh green beans, though you only need to roast them for about 10-15 minutes. It’s kind of become my go-to vegetable recipe.
A few notes: 1) Pine nuts are expensive. I don’t use them, though I bet it would be fabulous if I did because pine nuts are yummy. 2) I DO use the basil that the recipe calls for. I have found that Italian basil, purple basil and lime basil work well. Cinnamon basil – well, the flavors don’t meld so much. 3) When my basil plants are looking puny, I have been known to turn to other herbs. Chives work well, as does thyme.
