To make broccoli special, chef Laurent Tourondel cuts it into steaks and roasts it in the oven, then serves it with a cool and tangy yogurt sauce.     Slideshow: More Broccoli Recipes

How to Make It

Step 1    

Preheat the oven to 475°. Place a baking sheet on the center rack and allow to heat for 
10 minutes. Meanwhile, cut the broccoli lengthwise into 1/3-inch-
thick slabs, reserving any florets that fall off; trim the florets to form mini steaks that lie flat.

Step 2    

In a large bowl, toss the broccoli, olive oil and crushed red pepper and season with salt and black pepper. Carefully arrange in a single layer, cut side down, on the hot baking sheet. Roast for about 20 minutes, turning halfway, until golden and tender.

Step 3    

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, garlic, minced lemon rind and lemon juice and season with salt and black pepper. 


Step 4    

Transfer the broccoli to plates and top with the cheese. Garnish with julienned lemon rind. Spoon the yogurt sauce on the side and serve.
