Step 1

Preheat broiler to high**, then spread the broccoli florets evenly on a sheet pan. Make sure you only have one single layer of broccoli.

Step 2

Char the broccoli under the broiler, turning the broccoli every 5 minutes or so, until the edges of the broccoli are dark, but the stalks are still crisp tender. This should take about 15 minutes total, depending on the heat power of your broiler.

Step 3

Place the charred broccoli in a large mixing bowl, then add the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, pine nuts, 1/4 cup pecorino romano cheese, basil, salt, and pepper.

Step 4

Toss well to combine, then taste to see if any additional salt or seasoning is needed.

Step 5

Serve the broccoli with extra pecorino romano cheese sprinkled on top. Enjoy!
