ROASTED BROCCOLI and WHITE BEANS


 ROASTED BROCCOLI and WHITE BEANS





This delicious Nordic bean recipe features roasted broccoli and a hint of lemon.

 

Ingredients:

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • freshly grated Parmesan
  • 4-5 cups broccoli florets
  • a heavy pinch red pepper flakes
  • kosher salt + fresh cracked pepper
  • juice of 1 lemon, plus a few slices to roast
  • 1 15 oz. can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, plus more for pan

 

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Drizzle a baking sheet lightly with olive oil, set aside.
  3. Mix olive oil, garlic and red pepper flakes in a bowl. Toss broccoli in garlic oil mixture to coat, followed by white beans (be careful not break up white beans with heavy handling). Place mixture on prepared baking sheet, nestling a few lemon slices in the mix. Season with salt & fresh cracked pepper and roast in oven, tossing occasionally for about 15-20 minutes. When beans and broccoli begin to char, top with a heavy dose of Parmesan cheese, turn the oven to BROIL and cook for 2 minutes, or until cheese is melted and starting to bubble.
  4. Remove from oven, squeeze fresh lemon on top to taste. Serve with grated Parmesan and a poached egg if you fancy. Enjoy your healthy food!
