Segment 5 (Cheryl's Recipe Corner)

  • Roasted Broccoli
  • Tonight I am sharing with you my recipe for roasted broccoli. I have never been a broccoli fan, whereas Russ loves it... and I think this was the recipe that helped convince me that broccoli IS okay to eat. We prepared this for our Thanksgiving Day dinner, attended by several friends, that we hosted, and everyone raved about how delicious it was. The recipe also works well using brussels sprouts or asparagus! You can use fresh or frozen broccoli - we have used both with excellent results. It isn't a pretty dish, but it is very yummy!
  • Ingredients
    • 2 heads broccoli, separated into florets (or 1 pound frozen broccoli)
    • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • Sprinkle of crushed red pepper (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
    • Shredded parmesan cheese
  • Directions
    • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). In a large bowl (a Ziploc bag works well for this), toss broccoli florets with the extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, pepper and garlic (and red pepper, optionally). Spread the broccoli out in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven until florets are tender enough to pierce the stems with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove and transfer to a serving platter. Squeeze lemon juice liberally over the broccoli, then sprinkle on Parmesan cheese before serving.

LHS Episode #158: Tipping the SCaLE

scale1Today we have a special episode of Linux in the Ham Shack in which your hosts interview two of the volunteer coordinators for the Southern California Linux Expo, Hriday "Bala" Balachandran and Stewart Sheldon. Both of them are amateur radio operators and play key roles in making SCaLE one of the largest and most successful Open Source conferences in the world. We talk with them about their new amateur radio focus for 2016, the conference program, technology and many other topics. It's a lot of fun and highly educational, so don't miss this one.
