I’m sure everyone has their own take on this, but it’s been a while since I’ve posted about a side dish. I also figured with all the dessert posts I’ve done lately, I could stand to put some veggie karma out there. 😜 Broccoli is hands down Jack’s favorite veggie, and he loves this roasted version so much we’ve seen him bypass main courses to devour it. Plus it’s super easy and ready in 15 minutes. What’s not to love?
1 large head of broccoli
2 tsps olive oil
1-2 tsp minced garlic
1/4 shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
Squeeze of lemon (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with foil. Remove broccoli florets from stems and arrange in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil over florets, then sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add garlic and use hands to mix until all the florets are lightly coated.
Roast in oven for about 13-15 minutes, or until you’re satisfied with the doneness of the florets. Remove to a bowl and toss with Parm and lemon juice if using… We regularly eat this both ways depending on what the main dish is and it’s delicious either way. Serve warm!
