1 pound broccoli florets, cut into 1-inch pieces

1 teaspoon olive oil

2 tablespoons grated fresh parmesan cheese

2 tablespoons dried currants

2 teaspoons grated lemon rind

teaspoon kosher salt

teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Place a large cast-iron skillet in the oven. Heat oven to 500 degrees.

Remove preheated skillet from oven. Add broccoli and oil; stir well. Bake for 8 minutes, stirring after 6 minutes.

Transfer broccoli to a serving bowl with cheese and remaining ingredients; toss gently. Serve immediately.

Serves six.

Cook's note: If you're buying whole heads of broccoli, cut off the florets, and then cut the top half of the stems into 13-inch coins. Toss them in with the florets to roast. They're delicious.
