    This recipe came from the blog, Nom Nom Paleo:

    • 2 bunches of broccoli
    • 5 peeled cloves of garlic
    • 4 slices of bacon cut into bite-size pieces
    • a few good glugs of macadamia nut oil, avocado oil, melted ghee, melted lard, or melted coconut oil
    • salt and pepper

    First things first: I cut up my broccoli into florets. No, I don’t normally wash ‘em unless they’re really dirty, but I do inspect for bugs and I toss the florets that are super-infested. Organic broccoli often features small crowns and large stems so I normally trim the tough skins from the stems and throw them in as well.
    Then, I tossed the broccoli, bacon, and garlic cloves in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag to store in the fridge until I was ready to roast them.
    When it came time to roast off the broccoli, I preheated the oven to 400 F and added some fat in the Ziploc bag along with a generous amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper. I sealed the bag up and shook it vigorously, and then I dumped the contents on a foil lined baking tray.
    Make sure it all fits in one layer or the broccoli won’t brown properly. I oven-roasted the broccoli for 30-35 minutes, rotating the tray and flipping the contents every 10 minutes or so.

    me too, Julie! I just bought some organic broccoli from the farmer's market and simply boiled it for a couple minutes and it's so good just like that!

    3 bunches of broccoli (about 4 cups of florets)
    5 cloves of garlic, minced
    4 slices of bacon cut into bite-size pieces
    4 Tablespoons olive oil, melted clarified butter, or bacon fat
    salt and pepper

    Preheat oven to 400*
    Line a baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
    In a plastic storage bag, add broccoli, garlic, bacon, oil, and salt/pepper. Shake vigorously until well coated.
    Spread onto baking pan and spread florets until they are all in single layer.
    Roast 30 minutes, shaking and flipping vegetables at 15 minutes.

    Englishmen understand almost better than any other people the art of properly roasting a joint, which is not to be wondered at;

    I am really interesting post. Because the art of cooking as practiced by most Englishmen does not extend much beyond roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.
