1 teaspoon curry powder 3 tablespoons olive oil 1 lemon, (Meyer lemon if you have one) 1 large head of broccoli or broccolini, cut into bite-sized florets salt and pepper 1/4 cup golden raisins, 1/2 cup toasted peanuts 4 scallions, thinly sliced 1 cup coarsely chopped basil 1/4 cup tahini, almond butter, or peanut butter
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Combine the spice blend with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large bowl. Add the zest of the lemon and the broccoli, and toss well. Season with salt and pepper, arrange the florets on a baking sheet in a single layer, and roast for 7-10 minutes, until the broccoli starts to take on a bit of color. Add the raisins, toss with a spatula, and continue roasting until the broccoli is deeply golden and the fruit has set down, for another 5-10 minutes or so. In a small bowl combine the peanuts, scallions, basil, 1 tablespoon of juice from the lemon, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside. Now, in a small bowl whisk 4-5 tablespoons of warm water into the tahini. Season with plenty of salt and pepper, and spoon directly onto whatever serving platter you plan on using. Transfer the roasted broccoli mixture to the serving platter, on top of the tahini. Spoon the basil mixture over the broccoli and enjoy.
