Looking to keep broccoli healthy but make it delicious? This recipe achieves a great balance of both with minimal effort. Use the vinaigrette with asparagus, cauliflower, or your favorite vegetable.

Ingredients
1 pound broccoli, broccoli rabe or asparagus
1 lemon
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 medium garlic cloves
3 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper

Directions
Remove and discard the tough stem of the broccoli. Cut into large florets/spears (3-inches long and 1-inch across)

Set up a steamer basket in a large saucepan over about an inch of water. Bring the water to a simmer, add the broccoli to the basket, cover, and steam until tender, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, using a rasp grater, zest half of the lemon and then juice half as well, putting the zest and juice in separate bowls. Reserve the other half of the lemon for another use.

Warm half of the olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Using a rasp grater, grate in the garlic, swirl it in the oil, and then remove from the heat. The garlic should barely color, not brown. Stir in the remaining oil, followed by the lemon zest, lemon juice, half the Parmesan cheese, and chili flakes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Transfer the broccoli to a serving dish, spoon the warm vinaigrette over them, and sprinkle with the remaining Parmesan cheese.
