Broccoli seems to be one of those vegetables that people either really like or they simply can’t stand it. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of middle ground. We fall squarely on the pro-broccoli team. We eat a lot of broccoli in our house. I mean a lot! We have it so often I even started growing it in my garden in the summer. It’s one of my most favorite vegetables, my husband’s as well. Both he and I will eat broccoli prepared most any which way but roasting it just adds another dimension of flavor that takes it from good to great! Now I know for some people broccoli is an acquired taste but roast it with some oil and throw on some salt and the entire flavor profile changes! Plus it’s a sneaky way to get little ones to give broccoli a chance!
Roasted broccoli is delicious so why not give it a try — Go Broccoli!!
2 broccoli crowns
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt (any kind of salt will do)
Cut florets off crowns and place in bowl. Drizzle with olive oil. Add salt. Mix.
Turn out on to a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until broccoli is soft.
Some ends/edges may be slightly blackened but this makes them taste all the better!
You can also chop up the stalks and roast them too if you like them.
