Roasted Broccoli - Serves 4

Recipe from The Complete America's Test Kitchen TV Show Cookbook 2001-2021

Trim away the outer peel from the broccoli stalks; otherwise they will turn tough when cooked.

1 3/4 pounds broccoli (about 1 large bunch)
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Ground black pepper
Lemon wedges, for serving

1. Adjust an oven rack to the lowest position, place a large rimmed baking sheet on the rack, and heat the oven to 500 degrees. Cut the brocooli at the juncture of the florets and stems: remove the outer peel from the stalk. Cut the stalk into 2 to 3-inch lengths and each length into 1/2 inch thick pieces.

Cut the crowns into four wedges (3 to 4 inches in diameter). Place the broccoli in a large bowl; drizzle with the oil and toss well until evenly coated. Season with the salt, sugar, and pepper to taste and toss to combine.

2. Carefully remove the baking sheet from the oven. Working quickly, transfer the broccoli to the baking sheet and spread into an even layer, placing the flat sides down. Return the baking sheet to the oven and roast until the stalks are well browned and tender and the florets are lightly browned, 9-11 minutes. Transfer to a dish and serve with lemon wedges.
