I debated posting this recipe, since it’s such a simple one…but it’s one of those recipes that is so good that I had to share “just in case” any of you have never tried roasted broccoli. Since I did get a couple of emails asking how to roast broccoli, I decided that it was definitely a “blog-worthy” recipe. So simple…so good. If you are trying to make things a little more exciting in the veggie department, please try this one.
And I have to add that this recipe is definitely kid friendly…my kids gobble up their broccoli when I make it for them like this.
I would highly recommend using a course salt and fresh ground pepper with this recipe. Enjoy!
