Short & Sweet Sunday - Roasted Broccoli


If you're paying close attention, you may have noticed we eat a lot of steamed broccoli.  That and steamed green beans are my go-to green veggie sides.

But just like roasted cauliflower and roasted Brussels sprouts, roasting broccoli brings out even more flavour and it's nice to have a different texture as well.  It's not as low-cal as steamed broccoli but it makes a nice treat.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and break the broccoli into florets.  


Drizzle the broccoli with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and cracked pepper.  


Roast for about 25 minutes until tender-crisp and just beginning to brown on the tips.  


When it's done, you can squeeze a little lemon over the broccoli or even sprinkle with some parmesan cheese.  Or just eat it as is.  


I served it with some chicken curry and basmati rice but it's great with just about anything.  Try it for a tasty winter treat that makes eating your vegetables the best part of the meal.
