Roasted Kale / Brussels / Broccoli

OK, this is the easiest recipe EVER, but it is so good that I have been re-creating it  (or some variation) for the past several weeks. Lunch, snack, dinner, WHATEVER…. I have even eaten it for breakfast! What is it? Basically, roasted veggie with pine nuts, goat cheese, olive oil and salt. I know, glamorous and sophisticated recipe, right?

 

So green, so good.

So green, so good.

 

Ingredients:

 

* Some type of green (broccoli, kale, and / or brussels sprouts)

* Goat cheese

* pine nuts

* olive oil

* salt

 

This batch was made with a mixture of brussels and kale. Fresh Direct (a grocery delivery service in NYC) makes it even easier as they sell a pre-chopped combo of these two veggies. So literally, I just had to put the toppings and voila.

So what do you do? You literally turn the oven on anywhere between 375 and 425. Then, you place chopped veggies in a pan, coat the greens with olive oil and salt, then you sprinkle goat cheese and pine nuts, and you bake it until it’s ready. SO good though. SO SO good.

 

Simple sophistication. Thank me after.

Roasted Broccoli

Hi all-

 

Sorry about the hiatus.  I had the below post scheduled for Friday, but it didn’t seem right to post anything given all of the craziness going on.

 

Particularly coming from a mixed-race marriage/family, I wish I had something intelligent / insightful / constructive to say.  But all I feel is sadness and helplessness.  It feels like we are in a bad movie right now, and my fear is it’s only going to get worse.

 

The only thing I know I can do is to hug my kids and talk to them about race and everything that is going on. And to pray for all of the families and friends directly affected.

Last month, while spending a weekend with dear friends, I was served (lucky me) the most scrumptious broccoli I have ever eaten in my life. I didn’t care that there was anything else being served, the broccoli was TO-DIE-FOR. It was a grilled broccoli recipe from Barefoot Contessa. Here it is.
