Even when I don't have anything in the fridge, I have broccoli. I love broccoli. I love it steamed, I love it raw, I love it grilled. Almost any way you can think of preparing or not preparing it, I'll like it. Broccoli should be in everyone's diet. That's a blanket statement I'll get behind. It's great for your hormones, for liver detoxification and can help fight cancer.
One way that I like to prepare my brocc, is just broiling it. Here's what I do.
Preheat the oven to 350 (I know I said broil, but we'll get there)
Break up the broccoli into big two-bite size pieces, placing them on a baking sheet. I used 1 head here.
Squeeze half a lemon over the broccoli, and pour over about a tablespoon of melted organic grass fed ghee. Mix.
Sprinkle on some red pepper flakes and salt.
After 5 minutes, remove the broccoli and mix it all up again. Now we broil.
Put the sheet back in, under the broiler for 7 more minutes.
I like to sprinkle some parmigiana regianno on top, and then place it back under the (off) broiler for another minute or two. These will be a little al-dente. That's by design. Even if you're going to eat totally cooked broccoli, eat a few pieces of raw as well. The enzymes make the constituents in the broccoli work much more efficiently.
