Roasted Broccoli

20160226_184717_resized [64016]

This side is too simple not to make!  Roasting the broccoli gives it this sweeter mellower taste.  It’s tender, yet retains a little of the crunch.  Two of my children will often just eat the florets, but when I roast broccoli they gobble up the stems and all.

Ingredients:

  • 1.75-2lbs. fresh broccoli
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Cut the broccoli into manageable pieces. Grease a foil lined baking sheet or line with parchment.  Spread the broccoli on the sheet in a single layer.  Drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Toss to coat the broccoli completely.  Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
