Charred Broccoli with Almonds & Cherries
I am challenged daily to eat more vegetables. I found this recipe in Eating Well and have been making it weekly, the veggies go down easily!
10 cups broccoli florets (1 1/2 lbs)
6 TBSP olive oil, divided
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 cup skin-on sliced almonds
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2/3 cup whole-milk plain yogurt
1/3 cup dried cherries
15 min to make, ready in 25 min.
1. Position an oven rack in lowest position: preheat broiler to high
2. Toss broccoli with 1 TBSP oil and salt in a large bowl. Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast on the lowest rack until tender and charred in spots, 10-15 minutes.
3. Combine almonds and garlic with the remaining 5 TBSP oil in a small skillet. Cook over medium heat until just starting to brown,–about 5 min. Scrape the mixture into a serving bowl. Stir in yogurt and cherries.
Add the broccoli and stir to coat with the dressing. Serve room temperature or cold.
