Dishes don’t get much simpler than this – toss broccoli, onion and bacon with olive oil and salt and pepper then scatter with cheese and roast!
Cheesy Roasted Broccoli, Onion & Bacon
As with many of my recipes quantities aren’t really important here. To turn into a main dish, add more bacon and serve with crusty bread and a salad of mixed leaves.
1 head broccoli, cut into florets
1 red onion, cut into wedges
2 rashers bacon, chopped
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
½ cup grated hard cheese such as Parmesan or Pecorino – I used a local hard sheep cheese
1 Preheat oven to 200°.
2 Place broccoli, onion, bacon and a good splash of oil in a large bowl and toss to combine. Season with a good grind of salt and black pepper. Tip onto a baking tray and scatter with cheese. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until broccoli is tender.
So tell me, what is your favourite way of cooking broccoli?
Where did the ingredients for this dish come from:
Broccoli, onion: Krismaw Gardens – Hastings; Bacon: Holly Bacon – Hastings; Cheese: Origin Earth – Havelock North; Olive oil: The
Village Press – Hastings; Store Cupboard Ingredients: salt, black pepper.
Note: Many of these producers can be found at the Napier Urban Food Market each Saturday morning and/or at the Hawke’s Bay Farmers’
Market each Sunday morning.
Happy cooking and eating.
