Broccoli with parmigiano-reggiano & pine nuts

Zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1/4 cup toasted pine nuts, chopped
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Fine sea salt
Florets from 1 bunch broccoli (about 5 cups)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

Combine zest, cheese, pine nuts and pepper in a small bowl. Bring a large pot half full of generously salted water to a boil. Add broccoli and cook just until florets are done to your liking, 2 to 8 minutes; drain and transfer to a platter. Sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano mixture and drizzle with oil. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Parmigiano-reggiano crisps

1 cup grated (not shredded) Parmigiano-Reggiano
2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves

Preheat oven to 300°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.

Mix cheese with thyme in a bowl. To form each crisp, spoon 2 to 3 teaspoons of the cheese mixture onto a baking sheet to make a small pile. Space the piles 2 to 3 inches apart as you go. When both baking sheets are full, lightly press cheese with the back of a spoon or your fingers to flatten each pile into a 2-inch circle.

Bake until slightly browned on top, 8 to 12 minutes. Remove baking sheets from oven and cool for a few minutes to let crisps firm up a bit. Slide parchment off baking sheet and use a spatula to loosen the crisps. They should be slightly flexible, but will harden as they finish cooling. Repeat process with remaining cheese mixture.

Allow crisps to cool completely before storing in an airtight container, layered between sheets of waxed paper.
