Roasted Broccoli turns a boring vegetable into a super veggie! This recipe will cause your family to clean their plates and beg for more.
Why This Broccoli is Special
Do you love broccoli, but wish you could jazz it up a little? Roasted broccoli is a quick and easy way to put veggies on the table. It’s also simple to add incredible flavor to this yummy dish.
When my son was little, he absolutely loved broccoli. He would eat it any way it was served. We always thought it was strange, ’cause most kids hate any type of green stuff. But, after all these years, he still loves this cruciferous vegetable packed full of fiber and nutrients. Yay for broccoli!
- head of broccoli
- olive oil or butter
- garlic, minced
- sea salt
- black pepper
- red pepper flakes
How to Make It
Roasting broccoli in the oven is my favorite way of bringing it to life. My daughter-in-law gave me this great idea of adding red pepper flakes which intensifies the flavor. Talk about adding some sass!
Simply cut the florets off a head of broccoli, then rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Place the florets in a large bowl and drizzle with olive oil or melted butter.
Add a few sprinkles of minced garlic, pepper and red pepper flakes, then mix together with your hands. Pop those florets on a sheet pan and roast in the oven for about 5 to 10 minutes at 425 degrees until they turn crispy on the ends.
Captain Cruciferous to the rescue!
