Roasted Broccoli

Maybe I’m the last person to try this, but have you ever roasted broccoli? Broccoli is a family favorite in our house – well, in terms of green vegetables and we usually steam it and serve with a dash of garlic salt. Very good and obviously good for you. In the summer we make a broccoli slaw, we put broccoli in stir fry’s, but I wondered what else we could do with broccoli? Then I thought, gee – we roast so many other vegetable, let’s roast some broccoli? I found a simple recipe on epicurious to get an idea of oven temp, etc… and it came out so great.

Don’t worry if the garlic smells like it’s burning, it caramelizes and tastes great with the browned broccoli. Roasted broccoli feels like a heartier side than our normal steamed broccoli – try it, let me know how you like it!
