Ingredients

Serves 6 people

Kosher salt

1 large bunch broccoli

½ cup coarsely grated Pecorino Romano

2 tablespoons warm water

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Maldon or other flaky sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons kosher salt.

 

Cut off the thick broccoli stalks, and cut the broccoli into 1-inch florets with about 1-inch of the tender stalks. Reserve the stalks for another use. Add the broccoli to the boiling water and blanch until crisp-tender, about 3 minutes; do not overcook. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking; drain well and pat dry.

 

Put the pecorino in a large bowl and whisk in the warm water. Whisking constantly, slowly drizzle in the oil to make a loose emulsion. Add the broccoli and toss to coat. Season with Maldon salt and pepper, to taste. Let stand for 30 minutes before serving.
